Astronomical Almanac (2016-2020)

* The phases of the Moon

* Lunar and Solar eclipses
* Annual summaries of when to observe the planets and asteroids
* Annual summaries of notable close planetary conjunctions
* Peak dates for the major meteor showers with moon phase
* Dates of perihelion, aphelion, perigee and apogee for the planets and asteroids

* Greatest Eastern and Western elongation for Mercury and Venus
* Opposition and solar conjunction dates for the outer planets and asteroids
* Apparent diameter changes for the planets
* Magnitude changes for the planets and asteroids

Whether you’re an expert astronomer or a casual star gazer, the almanac is the essential guide for observers everywhere.

  1. Reblogged this on Far Beyond the Stars and commented:
    This ought to be an interesting read. The writer is the experienced astronomer behind the blog The Astronomical Year and certainly knows what he’s talking about. I thought I’d pass this along—the more people see it, the more people will get a FREE opportunity to learn a thing or two about the night sky they didn’t know before! So if I were you, I’d download that Kindle book! (wink wink)
