Summary
To the beginner, the star-filled sky at night can seem as mysterious and unfathomable as it was to our distant ancestors. But with this book as a guide, the awesome nature of the cosmos is brought down to Earth. Learning about the Universe requires two distinct areas of focus: understanding the physical nature of the processes and objects amongst the stars and the ability to find objects and navigate around the sky. Mark Thompson's book combines these two areas in a unique and engaging way, taking the reader, in just 12 chapters, on the same journey that has taken mankind thousands of years
