The Sky at Night: Book of the Moon – A Guide to Our Closest Neighbour

The Sky at Night: Book of the Moon – A Guide to Our Closest Neighbour

The moon has fascinated humankind since the beginning of history. But far from being just a big rock out in space, the Moon has a phenomenal power over the earth, with its ability to create great waves, dictate the length of the day and summon the seasons. It is a key player in the story of our planet.

 

In this unique celebration of the Moon, lunar expert and space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin Pocock takes readers on a journey through the Moon’s past, present and future. She uncovers the way the Moon has captured our imaginations, contemplates how it was formed, and uncovers why we need the Moon to protect our fragile earth. Drawing on the latest scientific research, she then looks forward to what might be to come – will we return to the moon or will it become a launch pad to go into the great unknown?

 

Filled with fascinating facts and anecdotes, and written with warmth and passion,&nbspThe Book of the Moon is for scientists and stargazers alike. You'll never look at our closest neighbour in the same way again.
