Sept. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- You will be seeing stars when you read the breathtaking astronomy book Useful Star Names: With Nebulas and other Celestial Features. If you’ve ever looked up in the sky with wonder and wanted to know more, this helpful guide is a must read.

Retired astronomy professor Thomas Wm. Hamilton invites you along as he presents a fascinating list of the 88 constellations. Learn the names of the stars, nebulas and galaxies within each, as well as how to find their location in the sky and their brightness.

Professor Hamilton says his students always prefer to learn a star by its name, rather than its catalog number. “Teegarden’s Star is so much nicer sounding than SO 0255790.5.” Amaze your friends with your knowledge of the stars, because the sky’s the limit!

Hamilton knew he wanted to be a writer since he was young. “When I was 11 years old and I didn’t like the way Mark Twain ended Tom Sawyer Abroad, I decided to write my own ending.” Born in San Francisco, the author grew up in New York and New Hampshire. He lives on Staten Island, New York, and is working on his next astronomy book.
