Summary
  • Provides trivia on the planets, the Sun, and other celestial bodies, including the temperature on the surface of the Sun, why Pluto is considered a dwarf planet, and when and where one can see the next total solar eclipse
  • "Did you know that comets are sometimes called "hairy stars?" Or that if you saw a sunset on the moon, the sun would look white because the moon doesn't have an atmosphere? You'll learn this and much more as you become an expert on the objects in the sky"--Publisher
