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.
