This is a comprehensive guide to the basic movements we can observe in the sky. Schultz describes the daily movement of the stars from different parts of the earth (including southern hemisphere throughout). Included are the sun's pattern of the day and of the year, the moon's various periods, nodes and eclipses, as well as the planets' apparent movement and loops, conjunctions and transits. The appendix contains tables of periods and rhythms, and a guide to important occurrences to the year 2010.
Joachim Schultz (1901-1953) already showed an interest in astronomy at a young age when he took his father's globe and marched around a lamp in a darkened room to understand the movement of the earth. He studied science before going to the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland in 1927 to study planetary influences on plant growth. From 1942 until his death he was the editor of the annual Sternkalendar.
