Astronomy is inherently more observational rather than an elemental study of science. All measurements are performed at a greater distance from the object of interest, with no control of quantities such as chemical composition, pressure, or temperature. You will also understand the study of the solar system with relation to the gravitational attraction that holds the planets in their elliptical orbits around the sun. An early study of the universe was done through the naked eyes. This method led to the categorization of the celestial bodies and assigned constellations. Constellation has been a very important navigational tool since the beginning of the world. Various disciplines of Astronomy will also be discussed.
Each year, Earth--the tiny blue-green wonder humans call "home"--cruises through space and participates in an elaborate, celestial dance. "Astronomy for Beginners explains the amazing and remarkable annual events that occur in the skies, including the pattern of the heavens, the equinoxes and the solstices, the meteor showers, and the solar and lunar eclipses. It's a guided trip to the solar system and beyond!
Let’s talk about the constellations, or the shapes stars from. Some say constellations have meanings while others say they are the souls of our departed loved ones. This book discusses the science behind constellation. It provides a peek into astronomy, too. How about you? What do you think about constellations?
A solar eclipse, a revolt on Mount Olympus, an indecisive butterfly, blue monkeys and Bronze Age blurs, seamen and shipwrecks, cowboys and Indians, a nebulous menace on the celestial horizon, civilizations lost and found, all combine with a brand new box of Crayola crayons, and culminate in a star-gazing adventure for a little girl: ASTRONOMY FOR BEGINNERS is a never-ending journey into parts unknown.
