"Astronomical Numbers" - Astronomy by the Numbers: It's 'Astronomical!'
Astronomical Numbersprovidesmost of the commonly used and referenced numbers in astronomy in one convenient guide. According to the author, "There is a real need for a convenient and quick reference for all this astronomical data, which is scattered and time-consuming to find."
He includes the diameters of the sun, all the planets, major moons, the five different kinds of lunar month, orbit distances, magnitude scales, frequency of eclipses, and much more. Numbers are given in both miles and kilometers, and conversions for units that are commonly used in astronomy, such as the astronomical unit, lightyear, and parsec are also explained.
Because astronomy is such a rapidly advancing field, having up-to-date information is extremely important for anyone who studies the skies.
About the Author: Thomas Wm. Hamilton of Staten Island, New York, is the author of five other astronomy books, one science fiction novel, and an anthology of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and satire. The author worked three years on the Apollo Project determining orbital characteristics, fuel usage, and radar accuracy requirements. He taught college astronomy for 33 years at three colleges, while running planetariums and training students to enter the planetarium field. After retiring in 2003, he has been writing ever since.
"Amaze your friends and teachers with all the data contained in this extremely useful astronomy book. We are most pleased to announce its release," said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
