Adults seeking to recapture the magic of youthful stargazing, younger readers interested in learning about natural history and outer space, and those who appreciate beautiful, hand-painted art will all delight in this charming book.
About the Author
Praise For What We See in the Stars: An Illustrated Tour of the Night Sky…
"What We See in the Stars explains the human connection we have to the cosmos and the scientific discoveries made by people from around the world over several centuries. Beautifully illustrated, its inky pages take you on a journey to swim alongside the stars and celestial bodies throughout our galaxy. Kelsey Oseid makes you aware of your own unique place in spacetime and artfully shows why you should keep looking up."
—Ariel Waldman, author of What’s It Like in Space?
“This book is a beautiful way to learn about the science and history of the night sky. Kelsey Oseid’s beautiful paintings seem to be speckled with starlight and truly bring to life facts about astronomy, astrology, and mythology, from the mechanics of meteor showers to the tools used to map and name ancient constellations. What We See in the Stars is an amazing resource for anyone who ever looks up at the sky in wonderment.”
—Rachel Ignotofsky, author of Women in Science
