Explore the night skies with this beautiful illustrated monthly guide to the stars and planets.

This large-format almanac and wall calendar allows us to step outside and track the planets, locate the Milky Way, recognize constellations of the zodiac, and watch meteor showers.

Stargazers' Almanac 2025 provides a beautiful guide throughout the year to the night skies. It is designed specifically for naked-eye astronomy—no telescope needed! This makes it ideal for beginning stargazers and children, as well as experienced backyard astronomers. This calendar is a perennially popular Christmas gift, one that lasts the whole year.

Each monthly chart features two views of the night sky, one looking north and one south, as well as a visual guide to the Moon phases and planetary movements.

Stargazers' Almanac 2024 also features:

√  Advice on how to navigate the night sky
√  Overhead reference map of the sky
√  Reference plan of constellations
√  Glossary of constellations and Latin names
√  Glossary of the stars’ brightness
√  Guide to the signs of the zodiac and how they relate to the stars
√  Loop and eyelet for easy wall hanging
√  Presented in a sturdy cardboard gift envelope—no plastic!

The Stargazers' Almanac is suitable for astronomy enthusiasts throughout the Northern Hemisphere's temperate (non-tropical) latitudes, and it is printed on sustainably sourced FSC paper using plant-based inks, all of which reduce chemical emissions and make it easier to recycle.

“A very good, very useful Almanac.”
— Sir Patrick Moore

“This Almanac will show you the wonders of the night sky, a sight that is becoming ever more precious with light pollution often masking our view.”
— Bill Bryson

“Suitable for all levels of skywatcher.”
— Popular Astronomy

“A Christmas gift for anyone with the slightest interest in what is going on ‘up there.’”
— The Observatory Magazine

“This calendar has a place in the study or library as a reminder of what's up in the sky, and has popular appeal especially for newcomers to astronomy.”
— Journal of the British Astronomical Association

“With this in hand you should be able to explore the night sky and sort out Andromeda from Perseus...I really felt that with this in my hand I could find my way around the sky as I never have before...this is a really valuable asset to the amateur astronomer and a good gift for anyone with even the slightest interest in the stars.”
