  • Written by a premier astronomy expert, this book begins with a discussion of the Sun, from sunspots to solar eclipses. It then features over 100 tables on characteristics of the Moon, and the names, positions, sizes, and other key descriptors of all the planets and their satellites. The book tabulates solar and lunar eclipse, comets, close-approach asteroids, and significant meteor showers dates. Twenty-four maps show the surface features of the planets and their moons. The author then looks to the stars, their distances and movements, and their detailed classification and evolution.

  • The Moon is the nearest member of the Solar system to Earth. Humans from the earliest times have found the Moon to be an object of great interest and a source of speculation as to the meaning of the light and dark markings on its surface. The discovery of the telescope and its use by Galileo in 1610 to observe the Moon set these speculations at rest by revealing the true nature of the Moon’s surface. As telescopes improved so did our knowledge of the Moon’s features. The Moon is also the only body in the Solar system (apart from Earth itself) on which humans have visited and...

  • This book deals with topics in atomic and molecular structure and dynamics that are important to astronomy. Indeed, the topics selected are of central interest to the field of astronomy, many having been initiated by the needs of understanding worlds other than ours. Except for some lunar surface material returned by the Apollo missions, and material naturally delivered to us by cosmic rays, comets, and meteors, our only access to the other worlds of our astronomical Universe is through our observations of electromagnetic radiation from them.
