Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Amateur astronomer Tammy Plotner takes you on a journey with your eyes to learn in a very non-technical entry-level manner what to see on the Moon. … The book is divided into a chapter for each day of a lunation cycle … . I thoroughly enjoyed reading this guide to observing the Moon. I highly recommend it to anyone interested learning about our celestial companion. You will have hours of enjoyment as this book opens up the Moon to your eyes.” (Robert Garfinkle, The Observatory, Vol. 131 (1223), August, 2011)
