about

Expert Reader. In-depth and up-to-date books on popular nonfiction subjects, re-imagined with eye-popping graphics, vetted by world-renowned experts.

We all stargaze. On a cloudless night, we wonder about the extraordinary myriad of bright lights in the sky. But do we really understand what we are looking at? From the earliest times, people have been intrigued by the night sky. Over the centuries they have developed ever-more ingenious devices, from binoculars to powerful telescopes to spacecraft powered by the sun's rays. With these, they have explored everything humans can see, from the Moon to the most hard-to-reach areas of space.

Using specially devised star charts, this book helps readers identify particular constellations, recognize the difference between a star and a planet, and understand why the entire sky appears to spin. They will discover how stars are born and die, what nebulae are, and how comets and asteroids are formed. This book is packed with the latest stunning images of our universe and is a must-have for all young aspiring astronomers. Hang on to your seats for this informative, stellar tour of our amazing Universe!
