    The launch of the “Astronomy” annual by Quasar Publishing has become one of the favourite events on the Australian astronomy calendar!

    Astronomy 2024 is the definitive book for amateur astronomers in Australia. Quasar Publishing has been producing these annual publications for 33 years since 1991.

    These yearbooks are written by Australian Astronomers for Australian Astronomers.

    The Astronomy 2024 yearbook has been designed for anyone who looks at the night sky whether you are using just your eyes, a pair of binoculars, or a telescope. The book has something for everyone from the basic novice up to the advanced amateur astronomer. This includes those with a casual interest who might just want to know, “what is that bright star next to the Moon?”

    While there’s a swag of powerful apps available for your phone or tablet, none of have the same handy combination of info that’s in Astronomy 2024.

    This Astronomy 2024 and a good planisphere are powerful tools for those first learning their way around the sky.

    Every person worldwide from about the age of 2 years old up can point to the moon. Using this criterion the book can show you how to find the planets and many other bright objects in the night sky. The first section explains how to use the book followed by monthly sections that show the highlights for each month of the year starting with November and December of the previous year. A simple set of star charts in the middle uses seasons so that it is easy to follow. A very basic map of the moon shows most major features and highlights the Apollo landing sites. A guided tour from day 3 through to day 17 following the terminator is a great way to learn about the wonders seen on the lunar surface.

    The second half of the book covers in great detail, the solar system data such as Sunrise and Sunset, Moonrise, and Moon set for each capital city in Australia. Solar and Lunar Eclipses are covered in great detail. Each of the Planets has a section with details of the best months to view it, its satellite details, and more. Comets, Asteroids visible for the coming year, and the dates to see the best Meteor showers. Basically, it is an astronomy library all in one book.
