Item description for Astronomy Book w/Study Guide (Wonders Of Creation #2) by Jonathan Henry...
Overview One thing we have in common with ancients is that all of the human race has gazed at the night sky, and the bright morning, and wondered, ?What?s out there?? Our universe is so vast and awe-inspiring that to learn about it is to learn about ourselves.
The Astronomy Book will teach you:
What long-ago astronomers thought about other worlds. Solar system facts. How constellations relate to astrology. The history of space exploration. Black holes?do they exist? The origin and age of the moon. Why Mars doesn?t support life. The composition of stars, supernova remnants, and the myth of star birth. Asteroid legends and the extinction of the dinosaurs. Are there planets outside our solar system, and could they be home to intelligent life? What are UFOs? The age of comets and meteor showers. Learning about the universe is huge fun! In the most infinite expanse above us, we can examine planets, galaxies, and phenomena so beautiful and complex that we never outgrow a childlike wonder. We see our own reflection in the moon, the stars, and in comet trails. The more we learn, the less we fear!

Reviews - What do customers think about Astronomy Book w/Study Guide?
Must-have resource May 23, 2007
My son and I recently completed a thorough study of The Astronomy Book, and this study guide/workbook proved to be an invaluable resource. It contained many wonderful and interesting internet links for us to go to for additional information and also provided up-to-date information for some information in the book that was in need of correction due to recent discoveries in the scientific community.
I would highly recommend you purchase this guide to use in conjunction with the book. Study guides are available for all the titles in this series. All information is presented from a Biblical worldview and creationist science platform.
