Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Jean Meeus's latest book explores the frequency of blue moons, planetary groupings, and a great deal more, as only this master of astronomical calculations could. He predicted the May 2000 alignment in an article for Sky & Telescope magazine in December 1961, but without spreading the doomsday concern, of course. He has brought together these and other tidbits from his voluminous writings, spanning nearly half a century, on every sort of celestial configuration, cycle, and curiosity. His wide following in America can now enjoy these penetrating analyses, many of which originally appeared only in Europe. The collection is much more than mere anthology. Each conclusion has been checked, and virtually every numerical result calculated afresh, with all the rigor we have come to expect.
