The Deep-Sky Observer’s Year: A Guide to Observing Deep-Sky Objects Throughout the Year by Grant Privett
English | PDF | 2001 | 253 Pages | ISBN : 1852332735 | 22.88 MB

Deep-sky observing - that's looking at the stars, nebulae and galaxies - is easily the most popular field for amateur astronomers. The big problem faced by non-professional observers is what to look at - what's visible at a paticular time of year. The Deep-sky Observer's Year is a month-by-month guide to the best objects to view.

Wolfgang Smith, "Sagesse de la cosmologie ancienne : Les cosmologies traditionnelles face à la science contemporaine"
2012 | ISBN: 2296049885 | Français | EPUB | 326 pages | 0.4 MB

Dans la crise où se débat la pensée chrétienne, cet ouvrage ouvre une perspective libératrice. Constatant que l'apparition de la théorie de la relativité et celle de la physique quantique entraînent l'abandon du modèle galiléen de l'univers, il montre que les conclusions de la science la plus récente cessent d'être incompatibles avec les affirmations de la cosmologie traditionnelle. …

A History of Astronomy: from 1890 to the Present by David Leverington
English | PDF | 1995 | 398 Pages | ISBN : 3540199152 | 45.96 MB

The history of astronomy is, like most history, a multidimensional story, and when writing about a specific period, the author has to decide how to handle all the developments of earlier times in order to set the scene. I have done this by starting most chapters of the book with a summary of astronomical knowledge at the beginning of our chosen period, together with a brief review of how such knowledge had been gained.

Sanskrit Astronomical Tables by Clemency Montelle
English | EPUB | 2019 | 311 Pages | ISBN : 3319970364 | 155.75 MB

This groundbreaking volume provides an up-to-date, accessible guide to Sanskrit astronomical tables and their analysis. It begins with an overview of Indian mathematical astronomy and its literature, including table texts, in the context of history of pre-modern astronomy. It then discusses the primary mathematical astronomy content of table texts and the attempted taxonomy of this genre before diving into the broad outlines of their representation in the Sanskrit scientific manuscript corpus.

A History of Ancient Mathematical Astronomy

A History of Ancient Mathematical Astronomy by Otto Neugebauer
English | PDF | 1975 | 1468 Pages | ISBN : 038706995X | 137.47 MB

From the reviews:
"This monumental work will henceforth be the standard interpretation of ancient mathematical astronomy. It is easy to point out its many virtues: comprehensiveness and common sense are two of the most important. Neugebauer has studied profoundly every relevant text in Akkadian, Egyptian, Greek, and Latin, no matter how fragmentary; […] With the combination of mathematical rigor and a sober sense of the true nature of the evidence, he has penetrated the astronomical and the historical significance of his material. […] His work has been and will remain the most admired model for those working with mathematical and astronomical texts.

Beyond the four centuries of sunspot observation and the five decades during which artificial satellites have monitored the Sun – that is to say for 99.99999% of the Sun’s existence – our knowledge of solar history depends largely on analogy with kindred main sequence stars, on the outcome of various kinds of modelling, and on indirect measures of solar activity.

A History of the Solar System by Claudio Vita-Finzi
English | PDF | 2016 | 110 Pages | ISBN : 331933848X | 14.81 MB

This well illustrated book presents a compact history of the Solar System from its dusty origins 4,600,000 years ago to the present day. Its primary aim is to show how the planets and their satellites, comets, meteors, interplanetary dust, solar radiation and cosmic rays continually interact, sometimes violently, and it reflects humanity's progress in exploring and interpreting this history. The book is intended for a general readership at a time when human and robotic exploration of space is often in the news and should also appeal to students at all levels. It covers the essentials but refers to a large literature which can be accessed via the internet.
