To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love this little book, although it could benefit from a better quality of paper and perhaps a slightly larger size as some of the illustrations are difficult to view due to the combination.
I like the format of a month by month guide to what to look out for in the night sky with eclipses and meteor showers listed so they shouldn’t come as a surprise in the news the day after the event, which means you missed it. Sunrise, sunsets, phases of the moon and general information about the moon are laid out in reasonable fashion and it is an instantly interesting book to flick through. Not taxing if you take it a month at a time and it will aid your view of the night sky no end.
This is an excellent daily reference for planning observations or quickly answering questions about the night sky. The electronic version is great because you always have it with you on your phone, tablet or laptop!
A fascinating and very informative almanac about the night sky. I didn't realise how much I didn't know! Who would have thought there were so many different names for a full moon. Brilliant illustrations abound to support all of the information about our night sky. This would make an great gift for anyone with an interest in the night sky. Thanks to Storm Dunlop, Will Tirion, Net Galley and Harper Collins for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Whilst not laden with the glossy photos you may get with a magazine/bookzine-style guide to the night sky for the year, this handy book provides plenty of authorative information, plus has interesting little articles to read each month. Lasting hardback format. Great value (Amazon £5) too.
