To the naked eye, the most evident defining feature of the planets is their motion across the night sky. It was this motion that allowed ancient civilizations to single them out as different from fixed stars. “The Observer’s Guide to Planetary Motion” takes each planet and its moons (if it has them) in turn and describes how the geometry of the Solar System gives rise to its observed motions. Although the motions of the planets may be described as simple elliptical orbits around the Sun, we have to observe them from a particular vantage point: the Earth, which spins daily on its axis and circles around the Sun each year. The motions of the planets as observed relative to this spinning observatory take on more complicated patterns. Periodically, objects become prominent in the night sky for a few weeks or months, while at other times they pass too close to the Sun to be observed. “The Observer’s Guide to Planetary Motion” provides accurate tables of the best time for observing each planet, together with other notable events in their orbits, helping amateur astronomers plan when and what to observe. Uniquely each of the chapters includes extensive explanatory text, relating the events listed to the physical geometry of the Solar System. Along the way, many questions are answered: Why does Mars take over two years between apparitions (the times when it is visible from Earth) in the night sky, while Uranus and Neptune take almost exactly a year? Why do planets appear higher in the night sky when they’re visible in the winter months? Why do Saturn’s rings appear to open and close every 15 years? This book places seemingly disparate astronomical events into an understandable three-dimensional structure, enabling an appreciation that, for example, very good apparitions of Mars come around roughly every 15 years and that those in 2018 and 2035 will be nearly as good as that seen in 2003. Events are listed for the time period 2010-2030 and in the case of rarer events (such as eclipses and apparitions of Mars) even longer time periods are covered. A short closing chapter describes the seasonal appearance of deep sky objects, which follow an annual cycle as a result of Earth’s orbital motion around the Sun.

Wir sind die Summe unserer Erinnerungen. Stimmen diese aber auch? Haben prägende Ereignisse unserer Kindheit überhaupt so stattgefunden? Identität ist ein kunstvoll gewebter Teppich aus Erinnerungsfragmenten. Die Rechtspsychologin Julia Shaw erklärt, warum dem Gehirn dabei ständig Fehler unterlaufen. Und das Tappen in die Erinnerungsfalle hat Konsequenzen: Wir können uns auf unser Gedächtnis nicht verlassen. Auf der Grundlage neuester Erkenntnisse von Neurowissenschaft und Psychologie sowie ihrer eigenen bahnbrechenden Forschung zeigt Shaw, welchen Erinnerungen wir trauen können und welchen nicht. Ein verblüffender Einblick in die wahnwitzigen Mechanismen des menschlichen Gehirns.

Dass in ihr zudem das Blut eines uralten Hexengeschlechts fließt, versucht sie im Alltag mit aller Kraft zu ignorieren.

Hilfe erfährt Diana ausgerechnet von Matthew Clairmont, Naturwissenschaftler, 1500 Jahre alter Vampir – und der Mann, der Diana bald schon mehr bedeuten wird als ihr eigenes Leben ...

Beim Spaziergang durch Prag entdeckt der Autor an der Krypta eine Gedenktafel für tschechische Widerstandskämpfer. Sie versteckten sich dort nach dem Attentat auf Reinhard Heydrich – bis deutsche Soldaten, nachdem sie auf der Suche nach ihnen schon ganz Prag auf den Kopf gestellt hatten, die Krypta fluten ließen. Der Ich-Erzähler Binet ist so elektrisiert von dieser Geschichte, dass er beschließt, von Paris nach Prag zu ziehen und ihr nachzugehen. Er verfolgt die sich kreuzenden Spuren der Nationalsozialisten und Widerstandskämpfer im Frühsommer 1942 in Prag. Der Chef der Gestapo Reinhard Heydrich soll von dem Tschechen Josef Gabčik, der an den braven Soldaten Schwejk erinnert, auf offener Straße erschossen werden. Doch als der Mercedes mit Heydrich naht, klemmt der Abzug ... Ein freches und mutiges Buch, das man lachend und weinend zugleich liest. «Ein stilistisches Feuerwerk über den gefährlichsten Mann des Dritten Reichs.» PAGE
