I expected  ‘What We See in the Stars: An Illustrated Tour of the Night Sky- by Kelsey Oseid’  to be a short little book with a few nods to the things we try and see in the stars at night. Or that this was aimed at very younger readers. Boy was I wrong. Imagine my surprised when this book came. Wow. Turns out to be a wonderful book that covers so many things about our night sky.

The cover, I just love the cover. You get a good overview of space, not just the constellations, the moon and sun, the north star, aurora’s, the planets as well as deep space ec. It also talks about Total eclipses (totality) which we had just had a chance to experience a few months ago. So really this book gives a great over view with just enjoy information to not overwhelm you.. As well as a nod to what might of might not be out there.

he art, the art is wonderful.

Now some people have said that this book doesn’t specify where to look for the constellations but in this day and age where the sky is always changing I am glad this was not included. Plus there are some amazing sky viewing apps out there.

In fact there is a great site that tells you when the international space station flies by: http://spaceweather.com/flybys/

So grab some blankets and look up.
