Stikky Night Skies


If you’ve ever looked up at the night sky and…

  • wanted to point out a constellation to family and friends,
  • tried to find the Milky Way,
  • wondered how to navigate by the stars,
  • wished you knew more about what’s out there

…then Stikky Night Skies is for you. It uses a unique learning method to bring a fascinating topic to anyone with a little time. We spent hours with test readers refining it to be sure it will work for you.

In just an hour, you’ll know six constellations, four stars, a planet, a galaxy, and how to navigate at night. You’ll be able to step outside when the sun sets and apply what you’ve learned—right away.

Illustrations on every page make understanding easy.

Approved by experts.

“After only a brief read of Stikky Night Skies, you feel compelled to run outside to test your new-found navigational skills. No sentient person should be without these basic tools for looking up. We owe it to ourselves. And we owe it to our ancestors, who first tried to make sense of the cosmos.”
Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, New York City

“Anyone can learn the constellations with this book and a dark sky.”
David Wilner

Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and Nasa Hubble Fellow

“A very valuable introduction to the night sky for those who may never have thought they could recognize constellations or orient themselves to enjoy the splendors of our universe.”
Paul Goldmsith

Director of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center, and James Weeks Professor, Cornell University

“Now, I can even find objects I observe in the sky, rather than just on my computer.”
Alyssa Goodman

Professor of Astronomy at Harvard University

“A fascinating, clever and delightful book. I have taught contemporary astronomy and astrophysics for decades, and written a lot of books about these topics, but a lot more sticks in my mind after reading Stikky Night Skies.”
Ken Lang

Professor of Astronomy at Tufts University, Fulbright Scholar and author of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Sun
