Star Maps for Beginners
This is an easy-to-use system of star charts and maps. Each month of the year has a special star map to reference from any direction. For example, using the May sky map and looking west, the map shows the exact location of Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Hydra, and more. Using the same map for May and looking north you’ll see the Ursa Major, Ursa Minor (Big and Little Dipper), Cassiopeia, etc. As the calendar changes, just turn the page in the star map guide to see the new positions of the constellations. The guide also gives background information on the naming of the constellations and a detailed description of the sun and planets. There is also a chart of dates for viewing meteor showers. 64 pages, paperback, 8½”x11”.
