The Moon Book

The Moon Book

Since its publication ten years ago, The Moon Book has been one of our most popular and best-selling backlist titles. Now, on the occasion of the book's tenth anniversary, author Kim Long has given it a complete overhaul. A decade may see little change in the moon and its relationship to the earth, but a great deal changes in our understanding of that relationship. Amazingly, for all the centuries of scrutiny the moon has received, it was only this year that scientists discovered a patch of ice -- water! -- on the surface. This new edition brings up to date all of the results of the past decade's lunar probes and studies, as well as plans and designs for further exploration. Among the significant additions to the book's contents is a guide to the best and most interesting sites on the internet, which in recent years has opened up vast resources for skywatchers. The author also broadens the list of traditional Native American names for full moons, and he features an expanded discussion of lunar influences -- both demonstrable (tides) and debatable (human behavior during full moons). Features of the new design will include larger illustrations, and lots more of them. Why do some full moons seem larger than others? How big is the moon compared to the United States? How fast does the moon's shadow move across the earth during an eclipse? Which month's full moon is called by the Cheyenne, Time when the Horses Get Fat ? Answers to these questions and more -- much, much more -- are found in The Moon Book. It will change forever how you look at the night sky.
