24/01/2020: BOOK REVIEW: Yearbook of Astronomy 2020 By Brian Jones

This promises to be a rich blend of information, start charts and night sky guides (and more), and boy does it deliver! I read the Yearbook of Astronomy 2019 not knowing the book even existed and this year’s Yearbook of Astronomy 2020 is even more informative. As a very amateur star gazer, this book gives way more information than I’ll ever need yet does it in a way that doesn’t alienate or intimate the newbie - something I feel is important.

However, if you’re very much into astronomy and know your Orions from your Ploughs, you'll be more than satisfied with Jones' newest yearbook. Newbies and advanced sky lovers alike will be presented with the most recent information on stars, planets, meteorites, comets etc, their history and when & where to look for them. Fascinating stuff. Recommended.
