Summary "This guide provides clear explanations to all naturally occurring optical phenomena seen with the naked eye, including shadows, halos, water optics, eclipses and mirages. Separating myth from reality, it outlines the basic principles involved, and supports them with many figures and references, and a wealth of rare and spectacular photographs. There are many helpful hints on how best to observe and photograph the phenomena. For this second edition, the authors have added over 50 new images and provided extra material on experiments you can try yourself."--BOOK JACKET.
