Botswana is one of the best locations in Africa to view wildlife and also - because of its relatively low levels of light pollution - the stars. This book introduces the night skies of the southern hemisphere as seen from Botswana, and describes the stars and constellations that are visible to the naked eye. The author discusses some essential stargazer's tools and tips before mapping the southern skies in a series of monthly star charts that feature the most prominent stars and constellations. A chapter on the solar system - its planets, asteroids, meteroids and other 'space junk' - presents in broad brushstrokes our corner of the visible universe. Dotted throughout the book are lively accounts of ancient African and European star lore, telling of the unfaltering connection over millennia between humans and the heavens above. Accessible and designed for fledgling and experienced stargazers alike, Night Skies of Botswana is the perfect guide to one of southern Africa's most beautiful and enduring natural treasures.
