An Intimate Look at the Night Sky

by Chet Raymo, Walker & Co.

Astronomer Chet Raymo weaves mythology, music and even a discussion of light pollution as he invites readers to explore the mystery of the heavens. Although this book is much more than a guide for star gazers, a series of star maps is a helpful addition.

“Science at its best,” writes Raymo, “is an almost religious activity.”

Booklist called the book, “A delightful, inspiring introduction to astronomy.”
