Sun, Moon and Stars
by Sheena McGrath
It's amazing how many stories there are about those little lights in the sky. Even fairly obscure stars often had an interesting or quirky tale attached to them. Ancient peoples had a much better view of the sky than most of us do today, which probably spurred them on. While the classical myths of the constellations had to be included, if for no other reason than that the Latin names are based on those myths, there are also a great many other, less well-known myths and names for the constellations, planets, stars and comets. This book will give you a whole new way to see the stars and planets, as well as the history of mythology and science with ancient peoplesﾒ explanations of our universe.
