Starlight Nights Description
Author: Leslie Peltier

Paperback: 256 pages

Long out of print, the much-loved autobiography of celebrated comet-hunter Leslie Peltier is being reissued on the 100th anniversary of his birth. In a career spanning six decades and using telescopes from 2 to 12 inches in diameter, Peltier discovered a dozen comets and six novae and made more than 100,000 observations of variable stars. In Starlight Nights he recalls these achievements and reflects on the meaning of observational astronomy as well as all of nature. This new edition features an introduction by Sky & Telescope contributing editor and comet-discoverer David H. Levy plus 16 black-and-white photographs from the Peltier family archives.
