If you have ever gazed at the night sky and wondered about the stars and planets, then this is the book for you. The Young Astronomer provides an ideal introduction to astronomy for the young enthusiast. Practical experiments, using everyday materials, explain what you see in the sky, while helpful tips explain which equipment to choose and how to record what you see. The Young Astronomer transforms natural curiosity about the mysteries of the space into an absorbing, lifelong interest. Learn how to chart the phases of the Moon, read a map of the constellations, and build a model of the planets. Discover how to safely observe sunspots, when to see a meteor shower, and where to spot the brightest and nearest stars.
