A panoramic look at astronomy, this book covers every aspect of the subject and chronicles the discoveries made by stargazers, from the ancient Egyptians and Aztecs to today's advanced space probes.

Crisp, up-to-date photographs complement the text, while detailed captions and diagrams bring clarity to more complex concepts. There's information on how to identify familiar and unusual constellations as well as answers to the questions that have intrigued both children and great astronomers since the beginning of civilization.
