description

A twenty-first century look at our Sun, its planets, and their moons-including the latest research and technology on studying and defining the mysteries of space.
Over the last few decades our knowledge of the universe and what resides within it has expanded enormously. This exciting new book adds a modern sense of perspective to the stars above by comparing the very latest research and the most up-to-date technology with traditional beliefs-how ancient astronomers made sense of the heavens- presented in clear, easy-to-understand, exciting dialogue. With a twist of the wheel, the book's easy-to-use planisphere shows the positions of the stars at any time, on any day, and any latitude-complete with a description and examples on how to use it. The planisphere is a great way to chart the stars as you read through the book and discover the new solar system.
In these pages you'll find the evolving understanding of the solar system. A detailed overview examines how we read the night sky; constellations and the zodiac; motion of the planets; comparative sizes and locations; where the asteroid belt is; comets; satellites; theories of planet formation; and much more.
With over 200 full-color photographs and a 4-page gatefold of the galaxies, this beautifully illustrated guide will fill you with awe at the mysteries of space.
