    Description

    A complete visual guide to the universe


    Take a look through the lens and discover the beauty and science of the magnificent world that is our night sky - and beyond.

    From the 150km- (93 mile-) -wide impact craters on the Moon to Jupiter's Great Red Spot, a swirling storm that started in the 1600s, learn all about the history of astronomy. Find out about astronomical phenomena and take a visual tour of the Solar System, complete with stunning photography of the planets. This easy-to-follow book also makes use of clear graphics and annotations to explain the science behind the wonders of the sky.

    A definitive month-by-month guide to the night sky, with profiles of all 88 constellations, over 100 star charts, and an almanac of astronomical events over the next decade, will help you to navigate your way around the night sky, and locate stars, galaxies, and other objects.

    Featuring no-nonsense advice on how to observe the skies using the naked eye, binoculars, and telescopes, Astronomy is the perfect guide for keen amateur astronomers, as well as a great reference book for the whole family.
