50 Things to See in the Sky

50 Things to See in the Sky

by Sarah Barker Author

A guide to observing the night sky—talks about when and where to go, tools you can use, safety, and most important, how to identify stars, star clusters, planets, the Moon, the Aurora Borealis and all sorts of other rad stuff you can see with a little help from binoculars, a telescope, or the naked eye. This is a neat primer on amateur astronomy that doesn't talk down, over-simplify, or over-complicate things. I'd use this myself as an adult or gift it to a space-obsessed kid as young as 9 or 10. A book to kindle your love and awe of the natural world beyond our atmosphere.
