Special Order


The Winter Triangle, Southern Cross, and Alpha Centauri are just three of the endlessly spell-binding celestial patterns visible in the night sky to those based in the Southern Hemisphere. Because it's so easy to get lost in the many overlapping constellations, it helps to have on hand a portable reference to serve as your star-gazing guide. Sharply illustrated and glow-in-the-dark, The Night Sky of the Southern Hemisphere is easy to use in the field. You need only shine a light on the summer and winter star charts to illuminate the prominent constellations that are visible with the naked eye. To go along with labels are descriptions of each constellation, as well as the meaning of their names. There are also instructions for using your fingers to "walk" between constellations to pinpoint the locations of bright stars. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, astronomers, and novice star-gazers who wish to immerse themselves in the stories and legends of the southern sky. Made in the USA.
