Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fred Schaaf, astronomer, author of several popular astronomy books, and contributor to Astronomy and Sky and Telescope, has combined an astronomy guidebook with interesting, informative and entertaining activities and projects. Written so that it can be used and appreciated by adults and young teenagers alike, Seeing the Sky covers a tremendous breadth and scope of subjects that include activities for daylight and nighttime skies--the sun's corona, rainbows, atmospheric optics and much more. All 100 projects are truly original and cost-free observational activities that involve no more than the naked eye and common household materials.
