Space has captivated us since the beginning of time. Fifty years ago, Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon and since then our knowledge of astronomy has been continually expanding.
The Art of Urban Astronomy guides you through the seasons, to learn about the brightest stars and constellations, myths and legends of astronomy and how to identify star clusters and galaxies without a telescope. For urban dwellers wrapped up in the busyness of city life, it can be truly valuable to take the time to stop, look and reconnect with nature.
Packed full of seasonal star charts, constellation charts and fascinating facts, this is the perfect guide for those who have looked up at the night sky and don’t know where to begin. You’ll never look up in the same way again.
