Descrizione prodotto


"Mark is a wonderful promoter of Astronomy. He's tremendously knowledgeable about the geography of the night sky, guiding the experienced amateur and complete novice with equal skill and passion." (Professor Brian Cox)

"An admirably clear and concise guide to the wonders of the night sky, which will give anyone with a hankering to rise above the humdrum a toehold in the heavens. This is a book to get people started, whether keen amateurs or clueless professionals." (Marcus Chown New Scientist)

"I was captivated... a thoroughly good read. I wholeheartedly recommend A Down To Earth Guide... as an entertaining, exciting read, but also as solid reference material for any amateur astronomer." (Ian O'Neill Discovery Space)

"This book alone would be a good start for any budding Patrick Moore." (Engineering and Technology Magazine)

"Mark Thompson’s book tackles what most imagine to be a very complicated topic, opening up a whole new area of our universe in the most simple and straightforward manner. The reader is given a fascinating insight into our night sky and anyone who reads it will find themselves standing outside staring into that dark and deep abyss." (We Love This Book)

"A fantastic book that's perfect for both those interested in the science of the stars and those looking to do some observing themselves. Wonderfully written and accessible to astronomers of all ages and levels. This brilliant book is definitely worth picking up." (All About Space)

4.0 su 5 stelle Getting Down to Earth: A Review of Thompson's Guide to the Cosmos 31 gennaio 2013
Di Harold A. Geller - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida|Acquisto verificato
This is yet another tour guide for the night sky, with some important differences. There are 12 chapters. Each chapter has 3 main sections. The first section focuses on some unified topic in astronomy, such as the life cycle of stars, the scale (size) of the universe, the planets of our solar system, the Earth, Sun and Moon. The second section of each chapter examines the night sky for a month in the northern hemisphere, and the third section examines what's up in the night sky for the same month in the southern hemisphere. The reader may choose to read specific chapters for the month of the year and the hemisphere one finds oneself at the time. The reading is easy and certainly geared for the general public. There is much that the novice stargazer can learn from this book. The tour of the night skies for any month is probably where this book excels most. A few complaints I have deal with some details. The chapter material that summarizes the life cycle of stars troubles me most. Sure, it is most difficult to decide how to simplify a complex scientific story; however, in this case I think the author went a bit too far. I also found amusing that the author has the Andromeda galaxy at one distance on one page (p. 25) and a slightly different distance elsewhere (p. 106). The chapter on the evolution of the universe is another that I felt was oversimplified. At one place there is a statement about a mathematical relationship about which the author states there is no need to worry about. Perhaps he was told not to have any equations. Publishers believe that you lose a certain number of sales for every equation you have, but I would like for everyone to learn more mathematics. I was disappointed that there was no bibliography or reference notes at the end of the book, although one does find a rather thorough index. Anyone reading this book may want to investigate the concepts presented and want to know where they can find such information. I do applaud the author for providing a color photograph insert with pictures taken by schools (with one exception - his own photograph). And now I must say a word to my fellow Americans. This is a British publication. There are things that may cause the American reader to pause. The British insist on adding letters to words such as color and program. And please be aware of the fact that when the author talks about a torch, he is talking about a flashlight. Please don't bring any open flames to any of my observing sessions.

Just verbally gives star chart information. No why's or how's. And it's not a reference.
