The Kindle version of my latest book, 2016: The Night Sky Sights, is now available for free until 11:59pm (Pacific Time) Monday night.
Specifically designed for absolute beginners and casual stargazers without a telescope, this guide highlights over 100 astronomical events in 2016 – all of them visible with just your eyes.
Written by a former freelance writer for Astronomy magazine, every event has a full color depiction of the sky and a description that’s jargon-free and easy to understand.
The guide showcases events visible in the evening and pre-dawn sky as well as those you can see throughout the night. Highlighted events include:
* Pairings of the Moon with planets, bright stars and star clusters
* The best opportunities to see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn
* Meteor showers
* Bright stars and constellations
You don’t need to be an expert. You don’t need to know the jargon. You just need a calendar, clear, dark skies and a willingness to explore the universe above and beyond you.
It’s available in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. at the links below. If you don’t own a Kindle you can download the Kindle Reader software from Amazon. (Look along the top of the Amazon page for Free Reading Apps.)
