****The Universe

365 Days

by Robert J. Nemiroff and Jerry T. Bonnell

Reviewed April 5, 2004.
Harry N. Abrams, New York, 2003. 
Available at Sembach Library (520.222 NEM).

The Universe:  365 Days is another book of stunning photographs from Harry N. Abrams Publishers.  This time, the photographs are from space, pictures of our universe.  They include pictures of stars, constellations, planets, nebulas, comets, galaxies, and so much more.

365 is a large number of pictures.  It would be nice to own this book and look at one picture per day.  As it was, it took me longer to get through this book than The Earth From Above:  365 Days, because pictures from space were harder for me to understand than pictures of the earth.  We know so much more about space than we did when I was a child doing reports on the planets!  The pictures were beautiful and intriguing.

I highly recommend this book for anyone even slightly interested in astronomy, and anyone else interested in learning about the wonders of our amazing universe.
