With the aid of scale diagrams, the reader can grasp difficult-to-understand concepts such as how far apart stars really are, their relative sizes, how fast they spin and their shapes, and how the constellation patterns change over time. This book: - describes many stars visible to the naked eye in both the northern and southern hemispheres; - explains binary and multiple star systems in detail; - gives the properties of many open clusters; - enables a true appreciation of the scale of our galactic neighborhood."@en ;
