Book Overview

A richly illustrated guide to the myths, histories, and science of the celestial bodies of our solar system, with stories and information about constellations, planets, comets, the northern lights, and more.

Combining art, mythology, and science, What We See in the Stars gives readers a tour of the night sky through more than 100 magical pieces of original art, all accompanied by text that weaves related legends and lore with scientific facts. This beautifully packaged book covers the night sky's most brilliant features--such as the constellations, the moon, the bright stars, and the visible planets--as well as less familiar celestial phenomena like the outer planets, nebulae, and deep space. Adults seeking to recapture the magic of youthful stargazing, younger readers interested in learning about natural history and outer space, and those who appreciate beautiful, hand-painted art will all delight in this charming book.

Media was not available for comment. Such a pretty cover and layout! The title is holographic so it shines in the sunlight. The book is a lot thicker than I thought it was going to be, so it's a pleasant surprise. This is a great present for someone who loves space or yourself! It was a gift from my sister as a present but now I'm wanting to read it for myself.
   Doesn't provide a good reference for finding the constellations
This book is adorable and has some really cool facts, too. The author, for example, didn't bother adding in star names or references to actually find the constellations. Pretty failure since now we need another book to connect the cool stuff in this one to the actual night sky.
   Beautiful, well put together book
A beautiful book with wonderful illustrations and information. The cover has a metallic sheen to it and is also pretty in person. It was for my 9 year old who loves art and facts and is currently into starsplanetsconstellations, said Jennette Tamayo. It would be great to have a book to accompany a microscope or to gift with some type of planetariummuseum membership. It's a good present for any age or gender, really.
   Beautifully illustrated book for a complete beginner
3.5 stars. This is a beautifully illustrated book and you can tell a lot of time went into the design of this book. This book offers a good, general overview of the constellations and planets and would make a great present for someone who's interested in learning more about the stars, but if you're looking for a deep dive into the science and mythology of the constellations this book isn't for you. This book is recommended for a complete beginner who is interested in learning about the constellations and planets. It's just too good of a book for someone who really wants to dive into the mythology and constellations. If you are looking for work, then you are in the right place.
   Beautiful and packed with details
This book is so beautiful. I bought it because I love the style of the artwork and was surprised by how much information is packed into the pages. It's so much more than what I expected!
I gave this to my friends who live in a small ranching town in a very remote place in western Utah and they read this to their children and they love it!
   A Gorgeous Book
This is a stunner of a book and I'm so glad I purchased it. Weaving detailed information with gorgeous illustrations, I'm tempted to buy more as gifts! It's already sitting out on our coffee table and has been picked up by a number of guests!
If you want to know more about stars, planets, and almost everything about the universe, this book is for you. It's new, too, highlighting some of Hollywood's biggest stars who are about to die. The illustrations are just too good to be true. I'm so in love that I think I can't get over it to other astronomy books!
   Great Book About the Stars
My husband and I went on an astrology adventure together a month ago. It was so interesting to learn more about the stars and the industry, Sosa said. This book stands in a class by itself. I never knew there was so much to see and enjoy in the night sky. Next, I am headed to the planetarium. This book was very interesting had great pictures and identifiers, said Dr. Chester Floyd, who co-curated the book. Really enjoying it.
   Beautiful book! It is full of information and has ...
The book is beautiful, said Gillian. It is full of information and has gorgeous illustrations in a unique style. It would also be great to read to a kid who is interested in stars, space, or mythology.
