Compact, easy to use and reliable, this popular guide by astronomer and author Dr Nick Lomb has been providing stargazers with everything they need to know about the southern night sky for over 30 years. It contains the latest information and clear explanations on the solar system updated with the latest findings from space probes, historical features, details of the year's exciting celestial events, monthly sky maps, and viewing tips for city dwellers. Wherever you are in Australia or New Zealand, easy calculations allow you to estimate local rise and set times for the Sun, Moon and planets.

Published annually, the Sky Guide continues to be a favourite with photographers, event planners, sports organisers, teachers, students - and anyone who looks up at the stars and wants to know more.

The 2022 guide includes a feature by Gamilaraay astrophysicist Karlie Noon, which explores how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples predict the weather by observing the sky.
