Don't try to sit and read this straight through. The text explaining what is known about various objects tends to duplicate itself, which is fine if you're just flipping through and looking at all the gorgeous pictures, many from Hubble, or if you dip into it from time to time to look up something in particular. Stunning images. I am in awe of how big and old the universe is, and how many stars it has in it. My favorites are the galaxies that are running/have run into each other.

I asked to renew this book but the librarian said no! So, I'll wait 'til they put it back on the shelf and take it out again to finish. This is a great book with lots of good pictures and info about 300 different objects in the sky visible by eye, telescope, or satellite. So much info, so little time!

How in the Universe ;-) did I forget I have this? I've got a bunch of space books now, and this one somehow got buried in the pile. I'm moving it up....

I liked this book, believe it or not. It gave a lot of information, but it wasn't boring at all.
