Exploring the cosmology of the Vedas. Vedic knowledge is understood to have been captured by meditators in deep states of contemplation during the dawn of human civilization. Neuroscientists acknowledge today that a brain in a meditative state is uniquely different state from its waking, sleep and dream counterparts. Did ancient Rishis gain mastery over this state to infer from it scientific concepts about the structure of the Cosmos? Ancient Skies and Astronomy Now collates extracted information from Sanskrit texts to offer readers 27 in-depth instances of astounding similarities in deep sky observation with present day cosmology and twenty first century astronomy. The book includes: Astronomical basis for the division of the sky into 27 equal segments and the methods by which the Vedic calendar systems have been periodically corrected Charts showing boundaries between the 27 divisions of the sky on modern astronomical sky maps and coordinates of deep-sky objects associated with each division Explanations of the 4.32 billion year Kalpa time cycle found frequently in Sanskrit texts and the names of its sub-periods which convey real geological and paleontological events on Earth Opportunities missed by colonial scholars to verify astronomical knowledge in Sanskrit text and the resulting neglect of research into Vedic astronomy In depth illustrations of mining word-for-word meanings of Vedic mantras, using a neglected technique Deciphered codes related to stellar formation and the structure of the Milky Way galaxy from anthropomorphized descriptions of cosmic energy units (Devatas) Ancient Skies and Astronomy Now features a variety of unique astronomical phenomena and revisits popularly held beliefs about the process of cognition and of mantras. Fragments of poetry and prose from Sanskrit documents are dissected to illuminate little-known wonders that lie off the beaten path of conventional translations. Examples such as the Eridanus Supervoid dominated by dark energy venerating the powers of Yama over the deceased, or the star Betelgeuse leaving turbulence in its wake exemplifying the benevolence of Rudra bring the wonders of an ancient sky to life. Suitable for amateur and avid sky watchers, this is a book for anyone with an interest in ancient cultures and civilizations. It is also an outstanding introduction to deep-sky astronomy for readers familiar with Hindu astrology and native customs of India. Users of the Indian calendar systems or the Panchang will appreciate the book for the scientific knowledge it brings about the Nakshatras.

"The proposal to hold an international Summer School in Radio Astronomy was made by Mr. W. Burmeister when he was the Director of Extra-Mural Studies in the University of Manchester. It is believed that the School was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. The list of lecturers and their subjects shows that, with the help of the many distinguished visiting lecturers, we were able to arrange a general introductory course to Radio Astronomy, which, none the less, took participants close to the frontiers of knowledge in most of the main subdivisions of the subject"--Foreword.

The universe is an amazing declaration of the glory and power of God! Beautiful and breathtaking in its scale, the vast expanse of the universe is one that we struggle to study, understand, or even comprehend in terms of its purpose and size. Now take an incredible look at the mysteries and marvels of space in The New Astronomy Book! Discover the best ways to observe the heavens, along with up-to-date astronomical data and concepts Learn about the dynamics of planets, stars, galaxies, and models for the cosmology of the universe What we know and are still trying to discover about planets, moons, and comets within our own solar system. If you watch the stars at night, you will see how they change. This speaks to the enormity and intricacy of design in the universe. While the stars appear timeless, they instead reflect an all–powerful Creator who speaks of them in the Bible. Many ancient pagan cultures taught that the changing stars caused the seasons to change, but unlike these pagan teachings, the Book of Job gives credit to God for both changing stars and seasons (Job 38:31-33). When Job looked at Orion, he saw about what we see today, even though he may have lived as much as 4,000 years ago.

To British television viewers, the name ‘Patrick Moore’ has been synonymous with Astronomy and Space Travel since he first appeared on The Sky at Night in 1957. To amateur astronomers he has been a source of inspiration, joy, humour and even an eccentric role model since that time. Most people know that his 55 years of presenting The Sky at Night is a world record, but what was he really like in person? What did he do away from the TV cameras, in his observatory, and within the British Astronomical Association, the organisation that inspired him as a youngster? Also, precisely what did he do during the War Years, a subject that has always been shrouded in mystery? Martin Mobberley, a friend of Patrick Moore’s for 30 years, and a former President of the British Astronomical Association, has spent ten years exhaustively researching Patrick’s real life away from the TV cameras. His childhood, RAF service, tireless voluntary work for astronomy and charity and his endless book writing are all examined in detail. His astronomical observations are also examined in unprecedented detail, along with the battles he fought along the way and his hatred of bureaucracy and political correctness. No fan of Sir Patrick Moore can possibly live without this work on their bookshelf!

Ice and Fire: Great Comets to Come was written because a special celestial event climaxes towards the end of 2013 – the arrival, fresh from the Oort Cloud, of Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON). By all predictions – even the most pessimistic ones – this comet is set to be one of, perhaps the most, dazzling comet seen in modern history and has the astronomical world buzzing with anticipation. Skywatchers have already been primed for C/2012 (ISON) earlier in 2013 with the apparition of another naked-eye comet, C/2011 L4 (PanSTARRS), and following C/2012 S1 (ISON) there is the prospect of 2012 K1 (PanSTARRS) reaching naked eye visibility in August 2014. Future bright cometary prospects are also discussed, taking into account the latest predictions. Examining the origin and nature of comets using examples of great comets from the past, this book sets the scene for the arrival of Comet C/2012 S1 and those following it over the next few years in the inner Solar System. Skywatchers and amateur astronomers can learn how to follow, observe and record comets. There is also a guide on how to keep abreast of the latest cometary discoveries and how to use a variety of reputable sources, including publications, websites, programs and apps to visualize and plan observations. The role of the amateur in cometary discovery also is featured, as well as details on how professional astronomers plan to get the most ‘science’ out of cometary apparitions, how and why professionals go about discovering comets, and upcoming plans to visit comets with space probes (and later, perhaps, human visits). Illustrations provide historic images of comets, images from space probes and images of the latest bright comets. Orbital plots and easy-to-follow sky charts are also included. This book is a unique guide that sets the scene by giving a comprehensive history of comets and examples of great comets throughout history and informs the reader about the nature and origins of this spectacular occurence. Expectations are fully covered by explaining not only what the regular person can expect to see, but how amateur astronomers can plan observations and what steps the professionals are taking to ‘get the most science’ from this exciting event.

Like everyone else, most amateur astronomers live busy lives. After a long day or work or looking after young children, the last thing you want as an observer is to have to lug out a large telescope and spend an hour getting it ready before it can be used. Maybe you are going on vacation somewhere in the countryside where there are sure to be dark skies, but you don’t necessarily want astronomy to dominate the trip. Or suppose you are not quite committed to owning a large telescope, but curious enough to see what a smaller, portable setup can accomplish. These are times when a small “grab ’n’ go” telescope, or even a pair of binoculars, is the ideal instrument. And this book can guide you in choosing and best utilizing that equipment. What makes a telescope fall into the “grab ’n’ go” category? That’s easy – speed of setting up, ease of use, and above all, portability. In Part I of this book, we survey the various types of equipment, including accessories and mounts, that are available, and what it is best for what kind of viewing. Part II is about using your grab ’n’ go telescope to visit a wealth and wide variety of objects. There are chapters on solar, lunar and planetary observing, as well as descriptions of many deep sky objects, including double and variable stars, planetary, emission and reflection nebulae, open and globular clusters and distant galaxies. This ambitious text is dedicated to those who love to or – because of their limited time – must observe the sky at a moment’s notice, whether from the comfort of a backyard or while on business or vacation far from home. Everything you need to know is here. So get started!.
