Astronomy and the ImaginationRegular price $20.10
Unique among modern works on astronomy, this book reinstates the naked-eye observer and his personal experience of the stars into the science of astronomy. In an age when radio telescopes and spacecraft have made astronomy an increasingly complex high technology subject, sometimes accessible only to experts who interpret the computer images for us, this book shows us how we can understand the visual nature and movements of heavenly phenomenon even without a telescope. There are clear explanations of the principles underlying a qualitative observational astronomy, accompanied by many digital original diagrams.
