Overview

Robert Bruce Kelsey offers 12 expeditions to exciting lunar features visible in the evenings as the moon waxes to full. You don't need a large telescope and perfect viewing conditions. For beginning astronomers, this is your chance to spend enjoyable evenings viewing the moon as you've never seen it before. The lunar features are illustrated with drawings made from the author's 60 mm, 80 mm, and 4.25" telescopes. It's also a detective story designed to help readers solve the puzzle of the moon's geological history. When and how were the lunar seas created? How do you determine me relative age of the moon? For science educators, this is a fun, hands-on text through which your students can learn to draw conclusions about lunar history from what they see. Kelsey builds observation skills gradually, using themes such as following in the footsteps of the Apollo landing sites, and includes eyepiece illustrations to make this a one-of-a-kind lunar observing book.
