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. 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.

Patrick Moore did more than almost anyone else to popularize astronomy in this country. A journey in his company across the lunar wastes or through Saturn's rings was a journey of discovery

The Times

An inspiration . . . It's no exaggeration to say that Patrick, in his tireless and ebullient communication of the magic of astronomy, inspired every British astronomer, amateur and professional, for over half a century
