Visual Astronomy introduces the basics of observational astronomy, a fundamentally limitless opportunity to learn about the universe with your unaided eyes or with tools such as binoculars, telescopes, or cameras. The book explains the essentials of time and coordinate systems and their use in basic observations of the night sky. Readers will learn how to use widely accessible resources to determine what is visible (and when it is visible) from their particular location. Distinct attention is paid to the dependence of the appearance and motion on the observer's location, by extending the discussion to include various latitudes in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
