Three words can best describe this groundbreaking work – BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL. You’ll never look at a star filled sky the same after reading this and looking at the full color illustrations on every page. Thanks to our highly developed telescopes in space, we can now see images of beautiful galaxies and star-forming nebula that are millions of light years away. Some of the spiral galaxies shown in this book are truly breathtaking to behold, glittering with stars and glowing with an ethereal light. It can be hard to wrap your mind around the immensity of our universe, but seeing the beauty that’s out there somehow makes it seem more comprehensible.
