Number of stars: 4.7 out of 5.
Since ancient times, people have been looking up and wondering about all of the things that glow in the night sky, and about our place in the big, wide universe. The study of the night sky and all of the objects and forces up there is called astronomy, and A Child’s Introduction to the Night Sky is a great introduction to what astronomers have learned (and are still discovering), what astronauts and scientists explore–and what you yourself can find by gazing up into the night sky.
You’ll learn about how stars are born; how the planets move through the sky; and just where we are within the big galaxy we call home; the Milky Way. You’ll find out about solar and lunar eclipses, the phases of the Moon, and what a comet’s tail is made of. You’ll delve into mysterious forces (like black holes and dark matter) that are so strange that even scientists don’t fully understand them yet.
And when it comes time to find out about the starry constellations, you’ll learn their names and shapes, along with their stories–sometimes called myths–that were invented to help explain and identify them.
You’ll even learn about rockets, satellites, space stations, and space travel, including some of the exciting plans we have for future missions. When will a person visit Mars? It might be sooner than you think!
Finally, you will find out how to take the handy Star Finder outside with you and find all of your favorite stars, constellations and planets in the sky, just like professional astronomers do. (Wait until you find out how easy it is to spot Venus).
With A Child’s Introduction to the Night Sky, the Star Finder inside and the fun glow-in-the-dark stickers you can put on your ceiling, you will be a junior astronomer in no time!
