Astronomy Manual - BBC Radio 4 Midweek

Following the successful release of Haynes' Astronomy Manual (Foreword by Dr Brian May, Introduction by Sir Patrick Moore) author Jane A Green was a guest on BBC's Radio 4's Midweek programme with Libby Purves on Wednesday 3rd November. This provided an excellent opportunity to talk about the book and the wonders of astronomy to a wide audience of over 2,000,000 listeners. The programme which also featured Michele Dotrice, Jo Wilding and Ronald Blythe is accessible on BBC iPlayer.

Book sales are now soaring with foreign editions in the pipeline and requests for illustrated presentations flowing in.

A giant leap for Astronomy outreach.

Saturday, 28 August 2010


The launch date for this new astronomy publication is 7th October 2010. Jane is thrilled that both Dr Brian May and Sir Patrick Moore have contributed a Foreword and Introduction respectively, particularly as it is her first book.

Jane started presenting astronomy worldwide whilst serving as a senior officer on cruise ships. After being invited to host a Science Fiction Theme cruise, Jane became a professional Guest Speaker and continued in this capacity on many other ships. Now based ashore, Jane continues astronomy outreach with presentations to sell-out audiences, ranging from Women's Institute meetings and specialist lecture groups in 2,000-seater theatres, to literary and astronomy societies, often working alongside VIPs, celebrities and industry professionals.

This introductory book is for everyone. EVERYONE ... those who are already interested and those who think they are not. Available from all book stores and Amazon. All gentle reviews gratefully received!
