Stars and Planets by National Geographic Society

STARS AND PLANETS looks at the features of the night sky in three categories: Our Solar System, The Universe, and Constellations. Star charts map the sky and help young astronomers navigate their way with the naked eye, binoculars, or telescopes. Each entry answers the question, How Big and How Far? and shows the heavenly body, whether it's Pluto or Pegasus, in relation to either Earth or us - through an easy-to-learn hand sky-measuring system.
