WORLDS IN THE SKY

For young people and adults who never could understand eclipses and just why the seasons change, this attractive little book is the answer. Covering a great mass of information about stars, planets and other heavenly bodies, the authors present the subject simply and informally. There is the story of the earth, with a mention of some of the old theories, and some modern measurements; an explanation of the phenomena of day and night, and the seasons; planets, comets and shooting stars; the moon, the sun and other solar systems with distance presented in terms of light years and in terms of our concept of time. A fine addition to the science shelf.
