Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bring astronomy down from the mountaintops and into the backyard with this one-stop stargazing manual from Sir Patrick Moore and Pete Lawrence, stars of the BBCand#39;s The Sky at Night.and#160;These days, affordable telescopes, cameras, and software make it easy for anyone to explore the heavensandmdash;and capture breathtaking images. Here is all the information amateur astronomers need to proceed, including a month-by-month sky guide, a large wall poster of all the constellations visible from Earth, and a detailed map of the Moon compiled by Moore, who has advised NASA on lunar cartography.

Synopsis:

With one big bang, the universe exploded into being 13.7 million years ago. This is the story of how everything came about, from the moment when time and space came into existence, to the formation of the first stars, galaxies, and planets, to the evolution of human beings able to contemplate our own origins and ultimate destiny—and on to the infinite future, after the Red Giant Sun consumes Earth. This updated edition of Bang! explains it all in clear, straightforward terms, chronologically, without any mathematics, and including the most up-to-date discoveries.
