Patrick Moore's Yearbook of Astronomy 2015 by CBE, DSc, FRAS, Sir Patrick Moore

Until his death in 2012, world-renowned astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore edited this indispensable guide for fifty-two consecutive years. With the 2015 Yearbook of Astronomy, his friend and long-time co-editor Dr John Mason continues Sir Patrick's legacy.

The Yearbook of Astronomy collects together a month-by-month guide to events to look out for over the coming year, from eclipses and planets, to comets, meteors, nebulae and phases of the Moon. It also contains authoritative charts, astronomical data and a series of specially commissioned articles by some of the world's leading astronomers - a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man who popularized astronomy for over half a century.

Patrick Moore's Yearbook of Astronomy 2015 Reviews


Patrick Moore did more than almost anyone else to popularize astronomy in this country. A journey in his company across the lunar wastes or through Saturn's rings was a journey of discovery * The Times *
An inspiration . . . It's no exaggeration to say that Patrick, in his tireless and ebullient communication of the magic of astronomy, inspired every British astronomer, amateur and professional, for over half a century -- Brian May
This hardy annual has deservedly become a mainstay for all enthusiasts . . . It is to be hoped that the Yearbook of Astronomy will long continue and carry Patrick's name far into the future * Astronomy Now *
A concise and accurate summary of the main events of the astronomical year, which can be surprisingly hard to find elsewhere, even in this online era * Journal of the British Astronomical Association *
