The Astronomical Companion
by Guy Ottewell

This Companion is a book to look in for explanations, for reference, or for mere enjoyment. It is for those who already enjoy astronomy or the idea of it.

This book may be used to guide or supplement a short non-mathematical course in astronomy. Some sections would be required reading, while others can be left to catch the eye of the interested student.

This book also functions as a companion volume to the annual Astronomical Calendar in similar format. In fact, this Companion was born from the need for non-year-dependent supplementary material that had begun to swell the bulk of the Calendar
