1997 Yearbook Of Astronomy

1997 Yearbook Of Astronomy

by CBE DSc FRAS Sir Patrick Moore (Editor)


For more than 30 years The Yearbook of Astronomy has been the indispensable reference book for both beginners and serious astronomers. This annual guide again brings together an authoritative collection of charts and astronomical notes, plus a fascinating range of specially commissioned articles.

Part I includes a comprehensive month-by-month guide to everything the star-gazer will see in the coming year and a list of main astronomical events to watch for in 1999. Part II presents exciting essays by experts in their field ranging from Moore's own "Astronomers and Squirrels" and "Galileo -- A Year Among Jupiter's Satellites" to "Experiments in Visual Supernova Hunting with a Large Telescope" and "The End of the Universe".
