Is our star, the Sun, dying? How can you tell time from the stars? Or navigate? What are the measures of stars? Can we ever travel to other stars? In this engagingly written and concise book, the second in the Little Book series, noted astronomer James B. Kaler shows us the significance that the stars have had in human life, how we have used them to tell our stories, and how we use them to find who and where we are.
