    What a great book that explains, very easily, the "Power of Observation." I wish I had this book at the beginning on my major, it is very helpful. We used it for discussions, observations, and the midterm in our Intro to the Teaching Profession class. Now we are on to the next book.4/5. The Observation Deck is kind of like an I Ching for writers. At an impasse in your essay or novel? Looking for a new approach or even merely a warm-up exercise? Simply pluck a card from the deck, refer to the appropriate section in the accompanying book, and go with it/5(26).

Part I gives detailed instructions for observation projects valuable to the International Halley Watch in six areas of study: (1) visual observations, (2) photography, (3) astrometry, (4) spectroscopic observations, (5) photoelectric photom­ etry, and (6) meteor observations.

Abstract: NASA's International Halley Watch (IHW) has created a Comet Halley Archive. The collection of data spans the full wavelength range as submitted by scientists to the IHW.

At the time of the return (technically, "apparition") of the comet, astronomical telescopes and related instrumentation were vastly more sensitive than for any previous apparition.

Consequently, the International Halley Watch (IHW) was organized to stimulate, standardize, collect, and archive observations of the comet.

The Comet and You by Edwin C. Krupp. The Comet Book: A Guide for the Return of. Halley's Comet or Comet Halley, officially designated 1P/Halley, is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years.

Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime. Halley last appeared in the inner parts of the Solar System in and will next Aphelion: AU. In short, the study of comets is important from a historical perspective, scientifically compelling and, at the same time, entertaining.

In this authoritative book, the development of cometary ideas is traced from antiquity through the actual fly-by of Halley by international spacecraft in Cited by: The Observations is a hugely assured and darkly funny debut set in nineteenth-century Scotland.

Bessy Buckley, the novel's heroine, is a cynical, wide-eyed, and tender fifteen-year-old Irish girl who takes a job as a maid in a once-grand country house outside Edinburgh, where all is /5().

The Observations is an off-the-beaten-path type of novel, Jane Harris created a well written novel that still haunts me, as I finished the last page. Harris formulates a tale of mystery, psychological twister, a chilling-haunting, and murder that is interwoven with historical details and the great psychological pursuit and devices of its day/5.

The book also shows how to gain the most enjoyment from a telescope, as well as its use for formal scientific observations, since astronomy is one of the few remaining areas of science where useful work can be carried out by non-professionals.

The ideal companion to The Modern Amateur Astronomer. The return of comet 1P/Halley was an exciting period for all visual observers and, during the International Halley Watch observing campaign, Marco was the real-time monitoring network coordinator in Italy.

Thus, all active Italian observers were quite often in contact with him by phone to share impressions and observations.The Observations, the debut novel by British author Jane Harris, was published in and shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction in It was Waterstones book of the month and Faber & Faber's lead debut fiction title for spring (with its biggest ever initial print run for a first book).Author: Jane Harris.The International Halley Watch network of cooperating observatories and amateur astronomers from more than 40 countries enabled almost continuous recording of images and other data from the comet.

International Halley Watch Reporting Forms were distributed to assist in reporting observations to the International Halley Watch.
