Find Out About Astronomy a Fascinating Fact File and Learn-it-yourself Book, with 13 Projects and Over 240 Pictures by Robin Kerrod

This title helps you find out all about astronomy and stargazing: how to spot constellations, how the universe is expanding, and what the planets in our solar system are like. It includes 13 fantastic projects that help you discover things for yourself: make a telescope, mount binoculars on a tripod, photograph the stars, and create a model of the night sky. Over 240 images include step-by-step photographs and explanatory illustrations. It is ideal for home or school use for ages 8 to 12. This amazing hands-on book tells you exactly what to look for in the night sky. It will teach you all about outer space and how to become a proper stargazer yourself, with projects such as making a sundial and how to watch the Moon. Information sections take you through the different topics in astronomy: discover the patterns of the stars, the southern and northern constellations, how the stars change with the seasons, the movements of the Sun and Earth, and all about giant planets, meteors and comets. The 13 practical and fun projects help you find out things for yourself: try an experiment with friends to show the distances of outer space or the movements of the Moon, discover gravity, and use a balloon to see how the universe expands! More than 240 photographs and illustrations make everything easy to follow, and bring the heavens to life.
