This is a fascinating book. If I were still a huge astronomy buff that I was as a teen I would have read every word. If I had a great telescope and astro-friends/club I would have read every word. If I weren't OLD and the dreams of getting out into space not squelched, I would have read every word. As it was, I read every word until about halfway through. I found the discussion very interesting. And I still skimmed and read captions under the wonderful pictures through the end.

I highly recommend this book to anyone crazy for space. As soon as my friends get a chance to look at it I will try to find one of the space fans to gift it to.

So, have to admit much flies over my head. Pun intended. Knowing that many visions of dancing particles on the moon may actually be floaters in the eye of the beholder to spider babies flying just out of vision range, makes me understand UFOs much better. :)"

Cheryl I see S. Michele has it on to-read, too - but I'm a fast reader so I call dibs.

Darlene :) Michele is very speedy, too! I'm the slow one and you all have to wait for me to get it and then read it! :P
