Also the moon shadows on the gas Giants is extraordinary.Good photos, quick explanations. I especially enjoyed the close ups of the asteroids as I was not aware that such closeups existed.

    To quote from the back cover of the book, "Anyone with an interest in science, astronomy, and the mysteries of space will delight in this awe-inspiring guide to our solar system." This book contains some of the finest photos available of the solar system and are accompanied by detailed captions which by themselves are quite amazing.
