Already in ancient Babylon, humans have studied the Moon and its relationship to the planets and constellations.
Through incisive texts and illustrations using photos and computer simulations, this book explores the similarities and differences to other planets and their moons, the Moon's interactions with the Sun and the Earth, and interesting historical associations.
In addition to scientifically accurate texts, it contains numerous large-format photographs and graphics that vividly explain the complex phenomenon of the Moon. Richly illustrated, it is designed for anyone interested in astronomy.
