Book Review: Night Sky


Book Review: Night Sky

The book Night Sky by Jonathon Poppele is a field guide put out by Adventure Publications.  It was a National Outdoor Book Award Honorable Mention.  Basically, this is a great introduction to stargazing, and perfect for warm summer nights in the backyard, camping trips, or trips to the dark sky park (where you can stargaze at night).  It shows every constellation in the night sky, and tells when the best times for viewing are, as well as the best times of year, what times of year you can see the constellation, the mythology of the name, and how the constellation was discovered.  In the back of the book, there is a guide to the planets and solar system.
