Book Description

Review 'A very good, very useful Almanac.' -- Sir Patrick Moore 'A beautiful, informative spread for every month of the year.' -- Green Parent 'An almanac such as this can be a great blessing and encourage a sense of wonder at the heavens... The almanac will make an attractive and informative present, especially for a young person, to get them interested and involved in actual viewing' -- Margaret Jones, New View 'With this in hand you should be able to explore the night sky and sort out Andromeda from Perseus ... I really felt that with this in my hand I could find my way around the sky as I never have before ... this is a really valuable asset to the amateur astronomer and a good gift for anyone with even the slightest interest in the stars. *****' -- Brian Clegg, www.popularscience.co.uk 'Now a regular player on the night-sky-watching scene, the Stargazers' Almanac is in good time to be selected as a Christmas gift for anyone with the slightest interest in what is going on 'up there'... a very worthwhile publication.' -- David Stickland, The Observatory Magazine 'An attractive, user-friendly, understandable guide.' -- Robert Key, MP 'This calendar has a place in the study or library as a reminder of what's up in the sky, and has popular appeal especially for newcomers to astronomy.' -- Maurice Gavin, Journal of the British Astronomical Association 'Practical, nice to look at and suitable for all levels of skywatcher, I recommend the Stargazers' Almanac.' -- Peter Grego, Popular Astronomy 'This Almanac will show you the wonders of the night sky, a sight that is becoming ever more precious with light pollution often masking our view.' -- Bill Bryson Read more About the Author Bob Mizon, MBE, is co-ordinator of the Campaign for Dark Skies.
