A unique pictorial history of astronomical exploration from the earliest prehistoric observatories to the latest satellite images.

With 280 spectacular images and an inspiring story imparting the excitement of discovery, Sun and Moon marks the anniversary of the first moon landing by Apollo 11 in July 1969, and the 40th anniversary of NASA's geological survey of the moon, with its extraordinary cartography.

It illustrates how the development of photography and cartography - the means of documenting other worlds - is linked indelibly to the charting of the heavens, from the first image on a glass plate to the Hubble Space Telescope.

Sun and Moon is the gift of the season for anyone who has ever gazed at the stars or looked through a telescope.
