Chet Raymo, 365 Starry Nights

Short introductions to the night sky in astronomy, literature and mythology for every night of the year.  Use an app like StarWalk or SkySafari to find the constellations outside at night, but use this book to take your first steps to learn about them.  It is an ideal family read-aloud, appropriate for a variety of ages, year after year, or use it as a supplement to an astronomy textbook to rekindle a sense of wonder at the universe.

Here at The Sky Tonight, many of our Constellation pages are keyed to Raymo's 365 Starry Nights.

The simplicity of 365 Starry Nights is also its virtue.  It is organized only according to day and month of the year.  

The following index of constellations will aid in navigation for quick reference.
