Night Sky: Stargazing with the Naked Eye (Paperback)

£9.99
Usually despatched within 1 week.

Synopsis

Can you spot the Big Dipper in the night sky? Or Orion's Belt? Or Cassiopeia? Even in cities, and without the aid of a telescope, these are a few of the easier constellations to find. In fact, a great deal can be seen in the night sky with the naked eye - if you know what you're looking for.

Night Sky presents 200 colour photographs of stunning nocturnal vistas all visible to the naked eye. From the majesty of the Northern Lights (Aurora borealis) as seen from Norway or Canada, and the Southern Lights (Aurora australis) as seen from Australia, to seeing the clarity of the Milky Way over an Italian forest, from witnessing a lunar eclipse in Indonesia to charting the course of the International Space Station across the Indian night, and from seeing a Geminid meteor shower in New Mexico to recognizing the Great Bear (Ursa Major) constellation over New England, the book is a feast of nocturnal delights. Where necessary, additional inset photographs indicate the formation of a constellation.

Presented in a handy, pocket-sized landscape format - take it out at night when you're stargazing - and featuring 200 outstanding colour photographs supported by fascinating captions, Night Sky is a stunning collection of images.

Robert Harvey has a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, is a Chartered Natural Scientist and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. He created Natural World Photography to share his passion for the complexity of nature in all its forms, wild landscapes and the beauty of the night sky. His scientific understanding of landscapes and astronomy and technical knowledge of photographic techniques is matched by creative determination to show the natural world in new ways. Over 250 of his images have been accepted in international exhibitions worldwide. Night sky photography has taken him throughout the British Isles, the Arctic, United States, Turkey, South America and the deserts of Namibia. He chases elusive phenomena such as solar eclipses and aurorae around the world and leads landscape astrophotography tours to several of these destinations. He is a tutor in landscape astrophotography at Lacock Photography in Wiltshire.
