Have You Ever Looked Up at the Night Sky and Wondered Just What's Up There? People have been wondering about the mysteries of the universe for as long as there have been people. With the help of this book and the handy Star Finder and stickers included inside, you'll learn all about the stars, planets and other interesting things above our heads, and about the amazing explorers and thinkers who have unraveled their secrets. Why do stars seem to move across the sky throughout the night and change places over the course of the year? How far away is the Moon, and why does it change shape all the time? What's the best time to spot one of those shooting stars and what are they, anyway? (Hint: They're not stars) How did the planets get their namesand will we ever be able to visit them all? What are Saturn's rings made of? You'll find out the answers to all of these questions, and lots moreand when you're ready, you can take your Star Finder outside and spot the major stars and constellations. Then put the special glow-in-the-dark stickers up on your ceiling and bring the night sky inside your room!
