The format for this year is slightly different to others but the information is as informative. Its a great guide to monthly events and gives a clear picture to assist locating the stars. I bought my first in 2002!

This annual contains many useful and informative articles.
It is marred by an information section at the back which is riddled with errors and impossible for contributors to correct/update. The publishers should make it possible for astronomical societies to update their entries by email and they should go to the trouble of actually editing these entries.
An aspiring astronomer who wishes to join a local association and uses the 'information' section has a high chance of being frustrated and disappointed.

This book contains an amazing amount of information for beginners and experts. Obviously as it is not a full size book it doesn't contain big colorful pictures, and it does require a lot of reading if you're new to astronomy. On the up side, I can't think of any other book that gives as much information in an easy to understand format. It contains a month by month guide to anything of interest that is occurring during that month. It contains plenty of good quality black and white images and diagrams. This book is a must for any budding astronomer.Patrick Moore's Yearbook of Astronomy 2010

Quite interesting as it contains a lot of sky maps organized on days and hours. Every month there's information on where planets of the solar system are positioned along with the Moon and several bigger stars. You might find information such the position of the Sun on the 21th of June in the Northern Hemisphere, the 13th sign (Ophiuchus), which can be seen in June, in the southern hemisphere and important dates of great astronomers. There's also information on former space missions, such as Apollo 11 and some of its on board experiments. The 1910 Halley's comet orbit is described and the social implications of the created panic. It's a nice book, worth having.

This book arrived in a very bad state soaked through - time of heavy rain in November packaging had not coped with it. But immediately I reported it another was dispatched within 24 hours
