About this book

Kids and adults can explore outer space from their own backyards with this handy book of unusual and engaging activities. By simply looking up at the sky -- with the unaided eye -- parents, camp counselors, and other group leaders can help children identify, understand, and appreciate the inhabitants of the Milky Way and galaxies beyond. With this book, amateur star-gazers will become acquainted with the constellations, planets, and phases of the moon; how compasses, sundials, and telescopes work; and what causes shooting stars and other galactic phenomena. Down-to-earth explanations of astronomical events and concepts helps readers navigate their way through the stars.
