The Night Sky Companion - A Yearly Guide to Sky-Watching 2008-2009


 

The Night Sky Companion is a comprehensive guide to what can be explored in the heavens on a nightly basis. Designed to appeal to readers at all skill levels and involvement, it provides a digest for sky watchers interested in all-in-one-place information that includes history, current events, and of course interesting objects to be observed on any given day. It provides unaided eye observers an opportunity to view many objects or events as well as learn about their history, science and how just 'looking up' can be rewarding. It is richly illustrated with finder maps and photographs.
