A comprehensive month-by-month handbook to the stars and constellations visible from the northern hemisphere in 2016. This practical guidebook is both an easy introduction to astronomy and a useful reference for seasoned stargazers. Designed for Britain and Ireland, it is still easily usable anywhere between 40N and 60N, covering most of Europe, southern Canada, and the northern United States. Written and illustrated by astronomical experts Storm Dunlop and Wil Tirion, this guide has been approved by the astronomers of the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Content includes: advice on where to start looking; an easy-to-use star maps for each month with descriptions of what to see; the positions of the moon and visible planets; and details of objects and events you might see in 2016.

About the Author:

The Royal Observatory, Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the World, making it the official starting point for each new day and year. It is also home to London's only planetarium, the Harrison timekeepers and the UK's largest refracting telescope. It runs the annual Astronomy Photographer of the Year exhibition.

Review:

“A handy and straightforward guide ... attractive little booklet, small enough to slip into a pocket or rucsac, recommended.” British Astronomical Association's 'Journal'

“At such a modest price, this is an ideal Christmas stocking-filler for anyone young or old with even the slightest interest in events away from the trials and tribulations on planet earth” The Observatory

“This is a great guide to the 2015 night sky at a great price” Astronomy Now
