Gr. 3-5. In the 12 years since it began orbiting Earth, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided us not only clearer pictures than ever before, but also images of space objects more distant in space and in time than previously observed. Using the handsome format familiar to fans of his Destination astronomy series, Simon presents a succession of pictures from the space telescope; on pages facing the images, paragraphs of text clearly explain what is shown. Among the images are views of Mars and Saturn, a star cluster 15,000 light-years away, a cluster of new stars in the Eagle Nebula, the collision of two galaxies, and a black hole. An attractive, informative addition to a fine series. Carolyn Phelan
