The Night Sky: A Folding Pocket Guide to the Moon, Stars, Planets and Celestial Events
Learn about stars, our moon, planets (visible with the naked eye), eclipses, meteor showers, and other celestial events with this engaging, portable guide The Night Sky. It cuts through the clutter and offers simplified descriptions of the wonders of the universe that can be easily observed by the average person. There is also a handy insert about how to measure degrees using your fist and fingers. Both summer and winter star charts are included and, as an added bonus, they glow in the dark. All you have to do is shine a light on them (not in your eyes!) and they become illuminated. There is also additional background information on major constellations in both the summer and winter night sky. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, and amateur astronomers who wish to deepen their knowledge of the night sky in both summer and winter and connect more meaningfully with the spectacular phenomena of our precious galaxy.
