FIRST STAR I SEE TONIGHT is an intimate adventure with the sky and stars. This unique combination of prose, poetry, and art invites the reader to explore-in the company of an astronomer, poet, and artist-a night of wonder under the stars. The book can be thought of as an excursion into the earth's own shadow,
from nightfall to dawn, including a liftoff into outer space and a perspective on the delights of our home planet. It is
structured in seven chaptrs:

* TWILIGHT ZONE, a time when our perceptions shift and we become
aware of a wider universe.

* MOONGLOW. Through all its phases, our little sister-planet, the moon, is a constant source of wonder.

* DEEP SKY. When the moon sets, the sky darkens and deepens, and
countless new objects come into view.

* ORION AND FRIENDS. Constellations help us make friends
with the stars.

* REACHING OUT. In our time we have truly begun to reach for the stars.

* THE HOME PLANET. From space, we look back on our earth and see, with more discerning eyes, its times, seasons, lights, shadows, and colors.

* GOOD NIGHT. Finally, even astronomers must go to bed.

Bridging the gulf that so often separates the sciences from the arts and humanities, FIRST STAR I SEE TONIGHT shows how the astrophysicist's space and the poet/artist's sky can be understood and appreciated at one and the same time. It is written for young and old readers alike, but always for the
young in heart. Author/poet Robert Eklund and illustrator/designer Virginia Hoge invite you to come along with them on a.

Billion-year mission:

Descrambling the wonder

Outside and inside.
