The sky is a clear, glittering site where constellations (88 of them) form "provinces." It's not always easy to find the different groups, but this illustrated guidebook will lead you through the stars and make gazing at them a more meaningful experience. Begin with two larger maps that portray the entire northern and southern sky, and all the constellations in it. Another set charts the changes that take place in the heavens during the year: that's because the stars put on a different show for every season, and not every one is visible all the time. And, still more pictures present a close-up view of every single constellation, so you can see it in greater detail. (You'll see an image of the real or imaginary creature it's named after, too!) And, there's so much great information accompanying the super visuals: facts on how far away the stars really are, about other interstellar phenomena, on the history of every constellation and how they got their names, and the best way to do your star searching!
