The moon is our nearest neighbor in space, it's easy to find, it's bright, and you don't have to go anywhere special to view it. Astronomer John A. Read has selected fifty of the best things to see — organized by the phases of the Moon. As each day passes, an additional slice of the Moon becomes visible. With each slice comes new craters, lunar seas, and jagged mountain ranges. This is the perfect book for a first-time stargazer who is curious about what is up there.
