A classic guide to the beginnings of the sky. This edition of the famous guide on the night sky by Ian Ridpath and Wil Tirion contains information about the locations of planets and eclipses until the end of 2019. In the subsequent chapters, the reader will find descriptions of bright stars, constellations, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.
