It's designed specifically for naked-eye astronomy - no telescope required! - making it ideal for beginners, children and backyard astronomers. It has become a popular Christmas gift - and one which lasts the whole year round.Each monthly chart features two views of the night sky looking north and south, and a visual guide to the phases of the moon and the movements of the planets. The notes include fascinating insights into the science, history, folklore and myths of the stars and planets.Stargazers' Almanac 2015 also features:- Advice on how to navigate the night sky- Overhead reference map of the sky- Reference plan of constellations- Glossary of constellations and Latin names- Glossary of brightness of stars- Guide to the signs of the zodiac and how they relate to the stars- Loop and eyelet for easy wall hanging; presented in a sturdy cardboard gift envelopeThe almanac is endorsed by the British Astronomical Association's Campaign for Dark Skies. 'Sky glow' affects nearly all Britain's night skies with the result that the beauty of our starlit skies, twilight and emerging daybreak are being drowned in an orange sodium glow.Suitable for astronomy enthusiasts throughout the Northern Hemisphere's temperate (non-tropical) latitudes.
