The sun, moon, stars, and planets have been a source of wonder for as long as humans have lived on earth.

In this highly visual guide to observing the sky with the naked eye, kids aged 9-14 will delve into the science behind what they see. This captivating book offers a tour of our solar system and deep space, explaining how objects like Earth's moon were formed and introducing the "why" behind phenomena such as eclipses, northern lights, and meteor showers. Sky gazers will learn how to find and observe planets -- no binoculars or telescopes required -- and star charts will show them how to spot constellations through the seasons and in both hemispheres.

Activities include tracking the cycles of the sun and moon and observing the sky during daylight hours or on a cloudy night. Includes profiles of professional astronomers and sidebars on space technology and current issues, such as light pollution.
