Have you always wanted to explore the Moon like Neil Armstrong or the eleven other astronauts who have walked on its surface? You can tour the Moon from your own backyard with a small telescope or binoculars. This book will point you to the Sea of Tranquility (the landing spot for Apollo 11) and many other fascinating features you can spot on the Moon's surface.

Beginning with the New Moon, as each day passes, an additional slice of the Moon becomes visible. With each new slice comes new craters, lunar seas and jagged mountain ranges. This easy-to-use, illustrated reference book enables everyone, young and old, to better appreciate our nearest neighbour in space.

JOHN A. READ's journey into astronomy began with a small and rickety telescope purchased at the local pharmacy. He was fascinated that it was possible to observe the moon and Saturn with its rings with such meager equipment. He knew he had to share these views with others. After writing his first book, 50 Things to See with a Small Telescope, John retired from his career in corporate finance. John is now a telescope operator at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, sits on the board of directors at the Halifax Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and is studying astrophysics at Saint Mary's University. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
