If you know what to look for, you can make out planets, stars, galaxies, and even galactic clusters comprising hundreds of millions of stars and spanning millions of light-years. Whether you're an amateur astronomer, space enthusiast, or enrolled in a first year astronomy course, Astronomy For Dummies gives you a reason to look into the heavens. * Includes updated schedules of coming eclipses of the Sun and Moon and a revised planetary appendix * Covers recent discoveries in space, such as water on the Moon and Pluto's demotion from "planet" status * Collects new websites, lists of telescope motels, sky-watching guides, and suggestions for beginner's telescopes and suppliers * Provides free online access to chapter quizzes to help you understand the content Ever wonder what's out there in the big ol' universe?
