Astronomical Society of Edinburgh
Philip's Mars Observer's Guide
Some members will remember when Neil Bone was Vice-President
of the ASE. He is director of the BAA Meteor Section and has
written several papers and articles in the BAA Journal. He is a
regular contributor to Astronomy Now and author of five popular
astronomy books. His latest has just been published by
Philip's. We will be getting a copy for this for the library as
soon as it reaches Edinburgh's bookshops.

- Publisher's notes
- In 2003, Mars will be closer to Earth than it has ever
been. Aimed at the practical astronomer, this book looks at
what you need to know to make the most of the opportunity.
It includes maps of the surface of Mars and colour
photographs taken by spaceprobes.
