    Question Help! Trying to figure out name of a old astronomy book.



    I'm hoping someone on here will know this book! I'm trying to figure out the name of an old astronomy book that may be out of print but I would like to get. We used to have a copy in the bottom of a planetarium I worked at but the place got cleaned out.

    It was broken down into 12 months, and every day it discussed an aspect of a star or constellation visible during that time in the US. So there were 365 entries. There were hand drawings mixed in with the days and on the pages as well.

    Does anyone out there know this book?
