From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10?This title begins with two-page overviews of the history of astronomy, early instruments used in both astronomy and navigation, and astrology. Double-page spreads on optical and radio telescopes, observatories, spectroscopy, the solar system, the sun and moon, and each planet follow. The book concludes with a discussion of meteors and cosmology. The illustrations consist of small, full-color reproductions of paintings and full-color drawings and diagrams; all have captions that often contain more information than the introductory paragraph they surround. An excellent introduction to the topic.?Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
