With the widespread use of observing programs and apps probably fewer people are using a book like this, but I find it fun to scan for the next time an event will occur

Here, in one handy reference, are many of the past and future predictable events of interest to amateur and professional astronomers.

The sun, moon, and planets-Venus, in particular-were studied by the Maya. The heyday of Maya astronomy was in the 8th century CE, and Maya daykeepers published astronomical tables tracking the movements of celestial bodies on the walls of a special structure at Xultun, Guatemala in the early 9th century. The tables are also found in the Dresden Codex, a bark-paper book written about the 15th century CE. Although the Maya calendar was largely based on the ancient Mesoamerican calendar created at least as early as 1500 BCE, Maya calendars were corrected and maintained by specialist astronomical.

So....a woman with a bright, happy sheen to her voice calls me, the Planetarium Manager at the Bishop Museum in Hawaii, and asks "when is the full moon in August of 2003?" "You're getting married then, right?" "Yes, how did you know?" When I get such questions...and I love getting them, love that chance to help connect astronomy with the personal lives of our visitors...I reach for Mr. Meeus's book. This is an invaluable resource. If you need moon phases, or equinox times, or whatever, deep into the new century...this book has it. Anyone who has any role in the public interpretation of astronomy needs it on her/his shelf. -Shanahan

This is an excellent resource for lunar and planetary events, both past and future. I have been regularly consulting it for many years. The section on lunar occultations is especially invaluable for those seeking to predict local conditions. I own six books by Meeus. All are significant contributions to my astronomical library. Meeus is the master of celestial mechanics. Anyone interested in astronomy and the movements of celestial objects will appreciate any book by Jean Meeus.
