Description:

This 447-page book is an introduction to astronomy and the way in which it is studied. The book is divided into 44 chapters that go from the definition of astronomy to the explanation of the galaxy and the observation of the universe. The authors give the reader advice on measures to take when observing the sky, so that with time the reader acquires more elements to analyze the observations. In order to do this, the authors introduce important concepts of physics and mathematics. The equations used are very simple, however the book is written in such a way that it is necessary to read the chapters in order so that the concepts are easily understood.
