Stargazing From Game Reserves In South Africa

 

Author: Fairall
Format: Paperback
Published: April 2006

Stargazing from game reserves in Southern Africa offers visitors to game and nature parks an exciting night-time activity in the bush, giving them an opportunity to turn their binoculars skyward after dark.

The author takes readers on a brief celestial 'game drive', first setting the scene and then directing them towards the 'Big Five' constellations of the night-sky, with clear steps on how to find them. There is also a chapter on tracking the planets and tips on spotting the moons of Jupiter and the crescent of Venus.

The title concludes with a set of 12 star maps. Expertly illustrated with colour photographs and drawings, the title also features useful tips and hints for all keen star-watchers.
