With star charts, a guide to the constellations, and details about the seasons and the objects we see in the sky—all illustrated in H.A. Rey's inimitable style—this book has been a standard introduction to astronomy for readers 12 and up since 1952. More detailed than Find the Constellations, it explains how stars and planets move and how they have influenced human culture for millennia. This new edition includes updated facts and figures for each planet and new scientific information on earth-asteroid collisions, black holes, supernovas, the Kuiper asteroid belt, and Pluto's reclassification, as well as a link to an online planet locator.
