What Book Next ~ “This book shows you much more about all these wonders above us with full colour spreads, clear text and illustrations. We see inside the sun, meet famous New Zealand astronomers, and are given a map of both our Winter and Summer night skies, to make it easy to find the stars and constellations mentioned within the pages. Just take it outside at night and hold it up against the sky! Reading The New Zealand Night Sky by Alistair Hughes is a fantastic way to spark the wonder of the sky above us after dark.”
Read NZ ~ “The New Zealand Night Sky is not only a guide to what to look for and where to find it, but the author has included useful information about what you will need, when to view and any special considerations you might need. Sections in the book deal with different parts of our solar system, famous New Zealand astronomers and so much more. An excellent reference book, there are clear diagrams with simple labels and explanations to describe part astrological features and phenomena. There is a section dealing with Maaori interpretations of star groups including Matariki and Te Waka o Tamarerreti.” Read the full review.
