    Abstract

    THIS simple guide to the stars will admirably meet the requirements of those who are commencing the study of astronomy or who have become interested in the heavens since the lighting restrictions came into operation. It provides an “aspect chart” for each month, which will enable the observer to make a general acquaintance with the stars visible at a specified time and date; and four additional charts showing the constellations in greater detail. An important feature is a calendar-index, whereby the proper chart to be consulted at any time may easily be selected. In conjunction with a compass-card which is provided, the charts may be conveniently used for purposes of night-marching. The text includes a useful introduction to the study of the heavens and some brief notes on the constellations and principal stars.
