Synopsis

Stargazing with Jack Horkheimer Cosmic Comics for the Sky Watcher by Jack Horkheimer, Stephen James O'Meara

The vast night sky holds a special attraction for young readers, and Stargazing with Jack Horkheimer: Cosmic Comics for the Sky Watcher captures that sense of wonder in words and pictures. Jack, whose monthly cartoon Stargazing with Jack Horkheimer, has been a popular feature in Odyssey Magazine for many years, appears in animated form. As his human counterpart does in real life at the Miami Space Transit Planetarium, this cartoon Jack guides youngsters into space, helping them to explore the amazing lore and science of the moon, the sun, the planets and constellations, and other objects visible in the night sky. The book also introduces the basic concepts of stargazing and mind-boggling facts all presented from the viewpoint of Jack and his quirky cast of cartoon characters. Individual chapters cover The Bright Stars and the Patterns They Make, Seasonal Star Watching, and seasonal sky changes. Included are more than 50 cosmic comics, seasonal star-watching activities, star charts, tips for the best sky-watching, and an astronomy glossary and index.
