Since the beginning of human history, we have been looking up at the night sky and wondering about it. With this information-packed introduction to astronomy and stargazing, readers 9 to 12 can learn about the achievements of the great scientists, the history of space exploration, the story of our solar system, the myths behind the constellations, and how to navigate the night sky. Whimsical color illustrations appear on every page and sidebars include additional information, while the star wheel enclosed helps budding astronomers locate stars and planets from any location at any time of year.
