About this book

Galaxy: Explore the Universe, Planets and Stars is an accessible guide to the solar system and our night skies. Published in association with the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Richly illustrated with full-colour images, this is a comprehensive, up-to-date description of the planets, their moons, and recent space discoveries. The book is enhanced by hundreds of striking images of the planets and moons. The Astronomy section is ideal for both novice astronomers and more experienced observers world-wide. The clear, full-colour maps show stars, clusters and galaxies visible with binoculars or a small telescope. Written at an introductory level appropriate for high-school students, it provides fresh insights that appeal to anyone with an interest in planets and stars.
