Astronomy Yearbook 2018

Has to be said another great copy. Brian Jones has certainly surpassed 2017. Sure there are some issues some people point about about missing off the magnitudes of the planets and their paths through the night sky. But a quick telephone conversation with him, that will be fixed. Not sure which issue it will appear in as he already has 2019/20 about nailed.

An overall well written book with detailed sky notes (covering the seasons) then the usual monthly notes covering where the Planets are. Finished with some fascinating essays. Which are themselves timeless and make a great read if you want to pick up and read something during those cloudless nights.

One thing great thing i will say regarding these, excellent tool to plan your astronomy. Planetariums are fine to show you the now, but to read ahead and see what is good shows that these books still have a place in todays modern astronomy.

Keep up the good work Brian, and A star from us as always mate! Cant wait for the next edition!
