Anyone can get started in astronomy, just by going outside on a dark night with a star chart and learning their way around. Timothy Ferris, one of today's most respected astronomers, invites everyone to become a stargazer. Discussing reports from places like the Florida Keys, England and Italy, Ferris tells us what's been seen out there - the Ring nebula, the Silver Coin galaxy, the Virgo supercluster, and how to find them. His devotion to astronomy is clear, and his respect for the universe immense. This work is a starting point for the future of space. Download and start listening now!

    " This is the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads book choice for the year. I tried really hard, but just couldn't get into it. The chapters where he describes the lives various amateur astronomers tended to be more engaging. I finally gave up and just read those chapters. "

    " One of the best living science writers at the top of his game. Or only near the top? I will have to re-read the gorgeous, lyrical "Coming of Age in the Milky Way" to be sure. "
