Synopsis: Stargazing is among the most peaceful and inspiring outdoor activities. Night Sky, the award-winning book by Jonathan Poppele, makes it more fun than ever! Take a simple approach to finding 62 constellations by focusing on one constellation at a time, instead of attempting to study dizzying charts. Start with the easy-to-find constellations during each season and work toward the more difficult ones. Better yet, you’ll learn how to locate any constellation in relation to the Big Dipper, the North Star, and the top of the sky. With two ways to locate each constellation, you’ll know where in the sky to look and what to look for! Along the way, you’ll be introduced to mythology, facts, and tidbits, as well as details about the planets, solar system, and more! As an added bonus, the book comes with a red-light flashlight for night reading.
