A survey of radial velocities in the zodiacal dust cloud by Brian May( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Zodiacal Light, that misty diffuse cone of light seen in the West after Sunset and the East before Sunrise, is a beautiful and intriguing phenomenon. Even though everyone can enjoy the sight from a suitably dark location, it is poorly understood, and has been the subject of relatively little research. Brian May began his research into the subject in 1970, and was finally awarded his PhD in 2007, after a hiatus of more than 30 years pursuing his other career as guitarist with his rock band Queen. This book is Brian 's thesis, and as such presents the results of his research for astronomers

Bad magic by Motörhead (Musical group)( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...On Bad Magic, Lemmy sounds bloodied but unbowed, an ancient soldier who doesn't know the meaning of surrender and will happily run you through with a sword as he draws his last breath... Lemmy's bass work remains thunderous, as thick and dirty as it was in his salad days, and guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee continue to bring the noise in inspired fashion. Musically, this album brings very little that's new to the group's playbook, but they still sound like Motörhead, something thousands of younger and more agile bands simply cannot do"

The new astronomy guide : stargazing in the digital age by Patrick Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains the principles and techniques of astronomy in order to provide both beginners and experienced observers with the information they need to understand and enjoy the wonders of the night sky -- and to capture and share the resulting images. Beginning with what can be seen with the naked eye in both the day and nighttime skies, the author describe the origin and nature of the Sun, Moon, planets, stars, and distant galaxies -- and a host of other extraordinary astronomical objects -- and how you can capture their images using a camera (or even a camera phone). For those whose interest develops further, advice is given on choosing and using a telescope, teaming it with a camera, and capturing the sort of images, which, until recently, could only be obtained with professional instruments. This book includes full star atlases for the northern and southern hemispheres to help you track down what you can see on any night of the year

"This Hammersmith Christmas concert was the culmination of the 26-date 'Queen invite you to A Night At The Opera UK tour of 1975,' and was the last show of a very eventful and exciting year for Queen. Queen performed 'Bohemian Rhapsody' for the first time during this tour. Spirits were high within the band for this show; 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was enjoying its fourth week at No. 1 and 'A Night At The Opera' was climbing the album charts on its way to No. 1, which it achieved three days after this concert. The show was simulcast live on both BBC Radio 1 and 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' television show on BBC 2; the programme's host Bob Harris introduced the band on stage." --
