Fully revised, this official guidebook to the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, details the "home of time" that has been at the heart of nautical astronomy since the late 17th centurywhen Charles II commissioned Christopher Wren to design a building in which the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, could determine the "longitude of places." The book also includes details of the $30-million redevelopment of the Observatory’s South Building and the new Peter Harrison Planetarium, both of which opened in May 2007.
