The night sky / by Giles Sparrow.
On any clear night, the night sky offers an ever-changing display of fascinating objects, visible to the naked eye: stars, constellations, bright planets, the moon, human-made satellites, and sometimes even meteor showers or the International Space Station. With gorgeous high-definition imagery and a wealth of charts, graphs, and infographics, readers will find here what is visible in the night sky at various times of the year and from what locations around the world. They will learn what additional objects they can see with the help of telescopes, binoculars, and sky maps. Also featured are skywatching terms and night sky observing tips.
