Astronomy

by DK | 06 September 2018
Synopsis
Take a tour of the Universe, from the 150km impact craters on the Moon to Jupiter's Great Red Spot - a 400mph swirling storm that started in the 1600s. This stunningly illustrated handbook is lavishly designed to cover every aspect of astronomy. Learn about the history of discoveries in the field, from the earliest human civilizations to the present day. Discover more about astronomical phenomena, from the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy, and what happens when a star runs out of energy, to theories about the fate of the Universe - including the Big Crunch and the Big Rip, and take a visual tour of the Solar System, complete with the very latest photographs of the planets. A definitive month-by-month guide to the night sky, with profiles of all 88 constellations, over 100 star charts, and an Almanac of astronomical events over the next decade, will help you to navigate your way around the night sky, and locate stars, galaxies, and other objects. Featuring no-nonsense advice on how to observe the skies using the naked eye, binoculars, and telescopes, Astronomy is the perfect guide for keen amateur astronomers, as well as a great reference book for the whole family.
