Inhaltsangabe: The sky is a clear, glittering site where constellations (88 of them) form "provinces." It's not always easy to find the different groups, but this illustrated guidebook will lead you through the stars and make gazing at them a more meaningful experience. Begin with two larger maps that portray the entire northern and southern sky, and all the constellations in it. Another set charts the changes that take place in the heavens during the year: that's because the stars put on a different show for every season, and not every one is visible all the time. And, still more pictures present a close-up view of every single constellation, so you can see it in greater detail. (You'll see an image of the real or imaginary creature it's named after, too!) And, there's so much great information accompanying the super visuals: facts on how far away the stars really are, about other interstellar phenomena, on the history of every constellation and how they got their names, and the best way to do your star searching!
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9-Beginning with an introduction to stargazing and how to read star maps, the author relates how figures and creatures came to be represented in the patterns called constellations. The 88 alphabetical entries are often a page in length and are accompanied by large, sometimes full-page illustrations. The descriptions include information about the myths behind the patterns and note where and when it is best to view them. Some of the entries include bits of information on the scientist(s) who "invented" the constellation, how the pattern has changed over time, and occasional trivia. The images of the constellations, outlined in light blue with white star points against dark blue backgrounds, add essential information and visual interest to the text. The text font is large and easy to read. This volume will serve the needs of those interested in astronomy.
