From the Friends of Killarney Park comes A Camper's Guide to the Universe. This small but handy book provides useful information to people interested in understanding the mysteries of the skies above. It provides something for everyone including:
  • explanation of many night sky phenomenon
  • star tours of the constellations for each season
  • observing tips and sun facts to help tell their stories
This book is a great companion for both the car camper as well as those heading into the interior. Used in conjunction with a large amateur telescope (such as the one found in the Killarney Provincial Park Observatory), this guide can open the door to an experience seldom found elsewhere.

A Camper's Guide to the Universe includes:
  • 4 seasonal sky tours
  • 74 diagrams, illustrations and images
  • 9 observing tips
  • 24 fun facts
  • information on the Sun, Moon, Planets , and many of the incredible wonders of our Universe.
Foreword by science journalist Bob McDonald.

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
