DESCRIPTION

Celestial Delights

The Best Astronomical Events through 2010 by Francis Reddy and Greg Walz-Chojnacki

In the coming decade, North Americans will be treated to an exciting parade of meteor showers, planetary transits, lunar eclipses, and strong displays of northern lights. Learn to identify what’s happening in the night sky with CELESTIAL DELIGHTS, both an introduction to astronomy and a calendar of upcoming celestial events written for urban and suburban sky-gazers—country skies and expensive telescopes not required. This revised edition predicts and explains numerous naked-eye events with the same lucid writing and easy-to-grasp diagrams that earned the first edition rave reviews. An astronomy guide for the layperson, CELESTIAL DELIGHTS deepens our appreciation of what we see when we gaze at the stars, and inspires us to do so more often.
