About this book

Astronomy is the oldest science, probably because you can do it just with your eyes. From time immemorial, people across the globe have looked up at the skies and wondered. In Stargazing Maggie Aderin-Pocock gives an overview of the universe as we see and know it today, and explains what its components: earth, moon, solar system etc., mean and where we fit in. She shows us what can be seen with the naked eye as well as discussing stargazing equipment from astronomical binoculars to setting up your own telescope. Punctuated throughout with Maggie's top 10s – from Top 10 Interesting Bodies in Space to Top 10 Mysteries of the Universe and Top 10 Dark Sky Locations – this is a fascinating and very accessible guide to understanding our universe.
