[Sky & Telescope's Mirror-Reversed Moon Map (Laminated)] Sky & Telescope's Mirror-Reversed Moon Map (Laminated)

The past six months (the last half of 2006) you may have noticed that the sky's cloudy most of the time but mysteriously clears around the full moon. Perhaps that's a hint that we should be giving the Moon some observational attention. I have reviewed some excellent Lunar books in past issues (of the HAA Event Horizon) but this month (December 2006) I turn to the inexpensive new Moon Map from Sky Publishing as ISBN 1-931559-21-X.
