The YEARBOOK OF ASTRONOMY 2018 is a book no stargazer should be without. Recognised by
both amateurs and professionals alike as an indispensable guide to the night sky, the Yearbook
of Astronomy is one of the only reference books to be fully revised each year. The Yearbook of
Astronomy is one of the longest-running series of books on astronomy and the night sky. It first
appeared way back in 1962 (well over half-a-century ago) and continues to be, as it was then,
the main popular astronomy annual for amateur astronomers. For most of this time the
Yearbook of Astronomy was edited by Patrick Moore. Forthcoming editions will endeavour to
maintain the popular style and familiarity of previous editions, as well as offering its readers a
new, invigorating and inspirational layout and presentation. The 2018 edition contains
authoritative sky charts and detailed monthly sky notes that plot a clear path though the year s
eclipses, comets, meteor showers and deep sky objects. In addition the Yearbook of Astronomy
features a variety of topical and specially commissioned articles covering a wide range of
astronomy-related topics. Articles for the Yearbook of Astronomy 2018 include: Supermassive
Black Holes by David M Harland, Imaging Comets (astrophotography) by Damian Peach, Double
and Multiple Stars by John McCue, Modern Video Astronomy by Steve Wainwright, Is There Still a
Place for Art in Astronomy? by David A Hardy, A Year of Solar System Exploration 2016-2017 by
Peter Rea, Astronomy 2016-2017 by Rod Hine, Anniversaries in 2018 by Neil Haggath, and many
more Bursting with up-to-the-minute information, this collection is essential reading for anyone
fascinated by the night sky …
