Synopsis

Watcher Guides: Night Sky Watcher by Raman Prinja

Get ready to explore the magical night sky. Find out everything there is to know about what you can spot in the sky, such as how explorers used constellations as a form of navigation. Also discover when is the best time to spot comets and why the Moon's appearance has changed over time. Night Sky Watcher includes everything from the Sun to the Moon, to the stars and planets. Symbols are used within the book to show what can be seen in the northern and southern hemispheres. This allows the reader to view exactly what they can see in the sky, regardless of their location.

Reviews

'I'd want this book for Christmas if I was a little younger. Raman Prinja's Night Sky Watcher is just the thing for children who want to know about planets and stars, and it's just the kind of thing I feel would sit well on anyone's Christmas wish list.'
