Synopsis

Astronomy: 365 Days by Jerry T. Bonnell, Robert J. Nemiroff

Photographs of outer space, produced by earthbound and space telescopes and planet-roving satellites, have long captivated a vast audience. In this follow-up to Abrams' The Universe: 365 Days , the two astrophysicists who founded Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) bring readers the most ingruiging pictures of space to date. They include photographs from the Spirit and Opportunity rovers on Mars and the Cassini spacecraft orbiting the ringed gas giant Saturn, along with the latest deep-space revelations from the Hubble Space Telescope - and gorgeous views by professionals and amateurs alike of the wonders in the skies just above Earth. Accompanying each spectacular image is a short explanatory text. With an easy-to-navigate glossary and Universe by the Numbers chart, this latest book in Abrams' 365 Days series will be savoured by everyone who saw the first book, as well as anyone else who's ever felt the astonishing allure of the heavens.
