Encourage your kids to reach for the stars with this inspiring exploration of the night sky. Anyone with a view of the sky and a curious mind can be the next great Universe explorer!
Wonders of the Night Sky invites children all over the world to look up - just as curious people before them have done for millennia - and to know why each wonder appears before their eyes. This beautiful book connects readers to the many parts of our Universe visible to the naked eye against the sky, explodes them on the page, then provides inspiring connections to the science behind the stellar backdrop.
Professor Raman Prinja is the multi-award-winning Head of Department for Physics and Astronomy at University College London and a celebrated children's author. Professor Prinja pens this definitive look at the wonders above us, following on from the enormous success of his book Planetarium. Illustrator Jan Bielecki's striking depiction of each natural marvel will draw in readers to a lifetime of astronomical wonder. Astronomy starts with just looking up!
Wherever you are in the world, you can look up and see the marvels of the cosmos - red giant stars, spiral galaxies, dynamic nebulae, planets and so much more. And now you can understand the science behind them too. With this book in hand and eyes to the sky, the wonders belong to us all.
