"With 2018 Guide to the Night Sky, amateur astronomers can view the sky over the course of a year and not miss a thing. It is also a compact and comprehensive introduction to astronomy... The small and light format makes this book the ideal portable reference."
-- Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin

The ideal resource for beginning sky watchers is updated for 2019 sky activity.

For many years, Firefly Books has published Guide to the Night Sky annuals that cover events to occur the upcoming year in North America''s night sky. This year''s edition provides all of the guidance, information and data an amateur astronomer needs to view the sky over the course of the coming year and not miss a thing. It is a compact and comprehensive introduction to astronomy and the equipment needed, while sky watchers with more experience can use the book as a calendar reference for all of 2019.

Using the charts and maps and following the accessible text, sky watchers can enjoy viewing the night sky with nothing more complicated than a pair of binoculars or the naked eye. The maps are centered on latitude 40 degrees North helping backyard astronomers in the United States and Canada see how visible stars change over the year, and ensure that they catch the exciting sky events that occur. In addition to the month-by-month guides, the book includes an introduction to the planets, the moon and the sky, and comprehensive back matter. The book''s small and light format makes it the ideal portable reference for backyard viewing.
