About this book

As far back as you can go in history, the Sun sits at the centre of the human story. Presenting the Sun in a different light, this story is told not just by the daylight, but by the night sky; not just by its full brilliance but also its reflected, distorted, and bent light; and not just from Earth, but from the edge of the solar system.
