Bought this for my grandchildren...but everyone is getting into the astronomy thing now...
This is a terrific book and we are so glad we made this purchase for our family. My son jumps into bed every night excited to read his star book and I've learned just as much as he has. Wonderful pictures and texts....another knock out by DK.
