Our latest 132-page Astronomy Now special edition is an extravaganza of astronomy for the year ahead, with a complete 30-page guide to observing the planets, moon, meteor showers, two solar eclipses, and the deep sky in 2010. We also guide you through choosing the best astro-camera, courtesy of top British astro-imager Nick Howes, as well as featuring the best astro-images of the year from Astronomy Now readers.
Plus there’s more! It's the fiftieth anniversary of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, and Keith Cooper investigates the current state of SETI, while Emily Baldwin exclusively interviews the man doing the job that we all wish we could do – Britain’s first official astronaut, Major Tim Peake. We’ve got a round up of the International Year of Astronomy, a look at astronomy in science fiction, a countdown of the biggest bangs in the Universe, a review of 2009's biggest discoveries and a look ahead at the exciting space missions set to star in 2010.
It is the perfect Christmas present for all astronomers!
