Stargazers of the Night Sky by Jason Lisle (Hardback)
If you have ever looked up into the night sky and wanted to know more about what you are seeing, this book is for you. There is something about the night sky that captures the imagination and evokes a sense of awe and wonder. And our appreciation of the magnificence of Creation is enhanced as we learn about the cosmos. But what many people do not realize is that many of these celestial wonders are within the range of a small telescope. You just have to know where to look. Even without any optical aid there are countless celestial treasures that can be seen with the eye—if you know where to look for them.
Find Orion, a well known constellation and within it you can easily see the red supergiant star, Betelgeuse, over three trillion miles away without binoculars or a telescope! At 60,000 times the diameter of the Earth it is a celestial sight! Or marvel at our galaxy, the Milky Way, shining brightly overhead in late summer as you see the dark patches of dust, as well as light spots containing entire star clusters!
This hardback book is designed for everyone from students to amateur astronomers. Learn the best ways to observe the planets and stars and discover how to choose the best telescope. It includes 150 beautiful, full-color star-charts and other easy to use illustrations for success.
How do the phases of the moon work? When will the next solar eclipse take place? What is that bright star setting in the west? How do I find Saturn? What sorts of objects can be seen with binoculars? These questions and many more are easily answered with the helpful tips and basic understanding of astronomy presented in this book. Take a few moments to stand and look up at the glorious night sky, appreciating the majestic beauty of God’s vast universe.
Dr. Jason Lisle earned his Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Astronomy from Ohio Wesleyan University, as well as a Master’s and PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
