Turn left at Orion : a hundred night sky objects to see in a small telescope-- and how to find them by Guy Consolmagno( Book )

31 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A guidebook for beginning amateur astronomers, Turn Left at Orion provides all the information you need to observe the Moon, the planets and a whole host of celestial objects. Large format diagrams show these objects exactly as they appear in a small telescope (50-70 mm or 2-3" aperture) and for each object there is information on the current state of our astronomical knowledge." "Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition contains a chapter describing spectacular deep sky objects visible from the southern hemisphere, as well as tips on how to observe the upcoming transits of Venus. It also includes a discussion of Dobsonian telescopes, with hints on using your personal computer and the internet as aids for planning an observing session." "Unlike many guides to the night sky, this book is specifically written for observing using small telescopes. Clear and easy-to-use, this book will appeal to skywatchers of all ages and backgrounds. No previous knowledge of astronomy is needed."--BOOK JACKET

God's mechanics : how scientists and engineers make sense of religion by Guy Consolmagno( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In God's Mechanics, Brother Guy tells the stories of those who identify with the scientific mindset-so-called "techies"--While practicing religion. A full fledged techie himself, he relates some classic philosophical reflections, his interviews with dozens of fellow techies, and his own personal take on his Catholic beliefs to provide, like a set of "worked out sample problems," the hard data on the challenges and joys of embracing a life of faith as a techie. And he also gives a roadmap of the traps that can befall an unwary techie believer. With lively prose and wry humor, Brother Guy shows how he not only believes in God but gives religion an honored place alongside science in his life. This book offers an engaging look at how-and why-scientists and those with technological leanings can hold profound, "unprovable" religious beliefs while working in highly empirical fields. Through his own experience and interviews with other scientists and engineers who profess faith, Brother Guy explores how religious beliefs and practices make sense to those who are deeply rooted in the world of technology

Would you baptize an extraterrestrial? : --and other questions from the astronomers' in-box at the Vatican Observatory by Guy Consolmagno( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Witty and thought provoking, two Vatican astronomers shed provocative light on some of the strange places where religion and science meet. "Imagine if a Martian showed up, all big ears and big nose like a child's drawing, and he asked to be baptized. How would you react?" --Pope Francis, May, 2014 Pope Francis posed that question - without insisting on an answer! - to provoke deeper reflection about inclusiveness and diversity in the Church. But it's not the first time that question has been asked. Brother Guy Consolmagno and Father Paul Mueller hear questions like that all the time. They're scientists at the Vatican Observatory, the official astronomical research institute of the Catholic Church. In Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? they explore a variety of questions at the crossroads of faith and reason: How do you reconcile the The Big Bang with Genesis? Was the Star of Bethlehem just a pious religious story or an actual description of astronomical events? What really went down between Galileo and the Catholic Church? and why do the effects of that confrontation still reverberate to this day? Will the Universe come to an end? And could you really baptize an extraterrestrial? With disarming humor, Brother Guy and Father Paul explore these questions and more over the course of six days of dialogue. Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial will make you laugh, make you think, and make you reflect more deeply on science, faith, and the nature of the universe
