The ninth edition of Ian Ridpath and Wil Tirion's famous guide to the night sky is updated with planet positions and forthcoming eclipses to the end of the year 2017. It contains twelve chapters describing the main sights visible in each month of the year, providing an easy-to-use companion for anyone wanting to identify prominent stars, constellations, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies- to watch out for meteor showers ('shooting stars')- or to follow the movements of the four brightest planets, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Most of the sights described are visible to the naked eye and all are within reach of binoculars or a small telescope. This revised and updated edition includes sections on observing the Moon and the planets, with a comprehensive Moon map. The Monthly Sky Guide offers a clear and simple introduction to the skies of the northern hemisphere for beginners of all ages.

    Thanks for the assessment of Squarespace. Just what I was looking for. My websites (to be) are reflectionsby, which will be a platform to promote my writing and photography, mostly about the outdoors and travel. I need to be able to include samples of my magazine newspaper articles as well as galleries.

      They don't have a feature to register for online classes. But you can certainly sell digital products with Squarespace. So in a way, you can sell ebooks, course downloads. Or you can just sell class spaces, in a way that once they purchase from you, you can have Squarespace automatically email them a sales confirmation, with the details of how to access your class.
