As before, Dr. Degani, a professor of Astronomy at the State University of NY, clearly and methodically lays down the basic principles of astronomy while at the same time exploring its more daring hypotheses and discoveries. Beginning with what the naked eye can see and proceeding through the revelations of the various high powered telescopes, Degani guides the reader through the solar system, the Milky Way and its neighbors, and on to the outer reaches of the universe with its quasars and black holes.
Over 250 illustrations and an extensive glossary.
