Stargazer's Guide to the Night Sky
This beautiful book is so much more than just a guide to the stars. Written from a Christian perspective, Dr. Jason Lisle explains the celestial phenomena of God's creation. Beautiful photography, illustrations, and information take you on a tour through the event of stargazing the movement of heavenly bodies, celestial events, telescopes, the moon, sun, stars, and planets, deep sky objects, and the relevance of astronomy.
One especially interesting chapter that makes this stargazing guide a bit different is the chapter concerning the eye and how it works. This is a short chapter that explains the structure of the eye cones, rods, iris, pupil, retina and how they are involved in your vision and adaptation to lighting conditions. There are tips for adapting to night sky viewing with a telescope, binoculars, and with the naked eye.
You will find this book helpful before you begin viewing, and while you are gazing at the night sky. Star charts will help guide you through the constellations, major stars, nebula, the Milky Way, and neighboring galaxies. Incredible photographs of the sun and its activity, the moon and its terrain and phases, and planets with their moons will leave you in awe of the universe in which we live. A planisphere (designed for 40 degrees north) is also now included with the book.
This is a reference that will serve your family well, no matter the ages; and one that can be used for many years. 240 pages, hc. ~ Donna
