Have you ever wondered what that bright point of light twinkling near the horizon is, or just when you can expect to see the best shooting stars of the year? A Skywatcher's Year has answers to these and other questions about what is visible in the night sky throughout the year. Through 52 articles arranged week by week, A Skywatcher's Year guides you to celestial events and phenomena that occur or are visible with the naked eye and binoculars for each week of the year. It acquaints you not only with up-to-date astronomical information on stars, nebulae, meteors, the Milky Way, and galaxies, but also conveys the beauty and wonder of the night sky. Covering both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere, A Skywatcher's Year helps readers find prominent stars and constellations, bright star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies, and explains how and when to observe prominent annual meteor showers.
