Universe: Stunning Satellite Imagery from Outer Space by Heather Couper

In the tradition of this amazing series, this unique contemporary reference book transports the reader literally out of this world.This pictorial journey through the universe shows us such startling sights as butterfly nebulae, sun plasma loops, gas pillars, young stars and whole galaxies. We see detailed images of planets' surfaces, craters and atmosphere. Images from the Cassini mission focus in on Saturn's beautiful rings and moons.Introductory text to each chapter and detailed extended captions explain both the content of the pictures and the means by which it was captured.As with preceding volumes, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between art and nature within the pages. Keep watching the skies!
