Reviews

"No telescope? No problem. Let Bob be your guide to the night sky, with only your eyes (and a sense of wonder and curiosity)." --Fraser Cain, Publisher, Universe Today "One doesn't need an expensive telescope and a lot of expensive equipment to appreciate the beauty that our nighttime skies offer us. Instead, a pair of eyes is sometimes all we need--along with a good guide to help us appreciate and understand just what we're seeing. Bob King's book provides just such a guide." --Alan Hale, co-discoverer of Comet Hale-Bopp and founder of the Earthrise Institute "Bob King's book had me at these words: 'It may be science, but it sure feels like magic.' Because the night sky does feel like magic, and Bob has captured that feeling perfectly, in language that anyone can understand. He was already one of my favorite night sky writers. Now . . . I'm in awe." --Deborah Byrd, Editor-In-Chief, EarthSky "Most people think you need fancy equipment and special locations to appreciate the night sky. Night Sky with the Naked Eye guides new skywatchers to the natural and artificial wonders of the sky visible with their own eyes from their own neighborhoods, making astronomy accessible to everyone." --Emily Lakdawalla, Senior Editor, The Planetary Society
