Until his death in 2012, world-renowned astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore edited this indispensable guide for fifty-two consecutive years. With the 2015 Yearbook of Astronomy, his friend and long-time co-editor Dr. John Mason continues Sir Patrick's legacy. The Yearbook of Astronomy collects together a month-by-month guide to events to look out for over the coming year, from eclipses and planets, to comets, meteors, nebulae and phases of the Moon; but it also contains authoritative charts, astronomical data and a series of specially commissioned articles by some of the world's leading astronomers -- a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man who popularized astronomy for over half a century. "This hardy annual has deservedly become a mainstay for all enthusiasts. . . It is to be hoped that the Yearbook of Astronomy will long continue and carry Patrick's name far into the future" --Astronomy Now "A concise and accurate summary of the main events of the astronomical year, which can be surprisingly hard to find elsewhere, even in this online era" --Journal of the British Astronomical Association
