Supporting these articles are shorter entries on planetary features and satellites, asteroids, observational techniques, comets, satellite launchers, meteors, and subjects as diverse as software for astronomy and the structure of meteorites."--BOOK JACKET

Astronomers' stars by Patrick Moore( Book )
7 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 920 libraries worldwide
Mizar, Betelgeuse, Sirius, Delta Cephei, Vega, Algol, Eta Carinae are just some of the wonderful names astronomers over the centuries have given to stars. Moore, vice-president of the British Astronomical Association, introduces readers to the mysteries of astronomy by telling the captivating stories of certain stars. For example, Mizar, whose name means "girdle" in Arabic, in the handle of the Big Dipper has a visible companion called Alcor--"rider," in Arabic. Modern astronomy reveals that Mizar is actually a system of six stars--three binary pairs--engaged in complex orbital dance. Studying Betelgeuse, a red super-giant in Orion and one of the brightest stars, has helped astronomers to unravel the life cycle of stars--Betelgeuse, bright though it is, is near death. Delta Cephei, a star whose brightness fluctuates in a regular pattern, provided astronomers with the key to measuring the size of the universe. Each of the stars selected by Moore played an important role in increasing our knowledge of the universe. For those who read this thoroughly engaging book, the night sky will never be the same

The story of the earth by Peter John Cattermole( Book )
12 editions published in 1985 in English and Italian and held by 738 libraries worldwide
The Story of the Earth presents the complex history of the Earth from its formation through to the emergence of man and his influence on the planet. Peter Cattermole and Patrick Moore trace the evolution of Earth from its beginnings in the primeval Solar Nebula, through its bombardment by cosmic particles, continental drifting and the formation of mountains and oceans, and end with a study of the last Ice Age and the rise of man. While the approach is roughly chronological, time is spent in explaining some of the methods that geologists, physicists, chemists and biologists use to discover what processes have contributed to the internal make-up and external appearance of our unique planet. Accounts are included of the dramatic events that are still changing the face of the Earth: volcanoes and photographs - several taken from orbiting satelites - help to elucidate the story. ... Cover
