Observing Meteors, Comets, Supernovae and Other Transient Phenomena
Neil Bone, Patrick Moore (Editor)
From the Publisher
Neil Bone has written entirely about observing transient phenomena - events, often short-lived, that can take even the experienced observer by surprise. In a detailed but thoroughly readable book, he discusses the best way to observe, photograph, or otherwise record transient events associated with meteors, aurorae and other atmospheric phenomena, the sun, the moon, the planets, asteroids and planetary satellites, comets, variable stars, and novae and supernovae. Every amateur astronomer, regardless of experience, will find this book sheds a fascinating new light on observational astronomy.
