Product description


"This guide has something for everyone with even the slightest interest in the skies above: easy-to-follow advice for finding the good stuff, fun activities to deepen your appreciation of cosmic wonders, key events to watch for when the skies are clear and lots of tales and trivia to muse over when they're not."
--Alan Boyle, author of The Case for Pluto

"The Universe Today Ultimate Guide to Viewing the Cosmos is a really useful guide for the enthusiastic astronomer. A brilliant introduction for amateur astronomers."
--Charles Black, founder of the Space Exploration Network (SEN)

"Even readers who already have a background in amateur astronomy will murmur 'ah hah' when they encounter the lovely diagrams in this book. This is the astronomy book that we've always wanted."
--Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, author of Confessions of an Alien Hunter
