Abstract:

"Starfinder is the ideal indroduction to the night sky and how to observe it. It explains all you need to know about the Solar System and the rest of the Universe and shows you how to find and recognize objects such as stars and planets. To help you build your astronomy skills, it includes a month-by-month observation guide, a detailed directory of all 88 constellations, and a planisphere that reveals the night sky at any time of the year. The planisphere is a circular map of the stars with a rotating window on top. By turning the window, it can be set to show the stars as they will appear aat a particular time on any chosen night of the year."--Cover, p. [4]
