An inspiration to amateur and professional astronomers alike, the Yearbook of Astronomy warrants a place on the bookshelf of all sky watchers and stargazers. Maintaining its appealing style and presentation, the Yearbook of Astronomy 2019 contains an authoritative set of sky charts and comprehensive jargon-free monthly sky notes to enable backyard astronomers everywhere to plan their viewing of the year’s eclipses, comets, meteor showers and deep sky objects.

In addition, a variety of entertaining and informative articles present the reader with information on a wide range of topics including, among others, The Cassini-Huygens Mission to the Saturn System; 100 Years of the International Astronomical Union; The First Micro-Quasar; Getting the Measure of Double Stars; Asaph Hall: Man of Mars; and Science Fiction and the Future of Astronomy.

The Yearbook of Astronomy has been around for well over half a century and, as it heads towards its Diamond Jubilee edition in 2022, continues to be essential reading for anyone lured by the magic of astronomy and who wants to extend their knowledge of the Universe and the wonders it plays host to.

About Brian Jones

BRIAN JONES hails from Bradford in the West Riding of Yorkshire and was a founder member of the Bradford Astronomical Society. He developed a fascination with astronomy at the age of five when he first saw the stars through a pair of binoculars, although he spent the first part of his working life developing a career in mechanical engineering. However, his true passion lay in the stars and his interest in astronomy took him into the realms of writing sky guides for local newspapers, appearing on local radio and television, teaching astronomy and space in schools and, in 1985, leaving engineering to become a full time astronomy and space writer. He has penned 17 books to date which have covered a range of astronomy and space-related topics for both children and adults. His journalistic work includes writing articles and book reviews for several astronomy magazines as well as for many general interest magazines, newspapers and periodicals. His passion for bringing an appreciation of the universe to his readers is reflected in his writing.
