Book Description: The author thought he knew a few facts about the Big Dipper, and told them to children. When he finally researched them, he found they were false. Delving into the lore in an effort at atonement, he fell upon a sprawling trove of science, culture, myth, history, and imaginative literature, never as fully compiled, about the most famous constellation of all. Join Rob James on an exhilarating mental journey--from artifacts of the Stone Age to the latest research on sextuple star systems, coursing through ancient, medieval and modern societies and languages, and spanning the entire Northern Hemisphere. You will see one simple pattern of nature through stories both comfortingly familiar and strikingly new, and you will "feel a little prouder to be a human being.""Beautifully written, and effortless in bringing together concepts separated by great time and distance." -- Mark J. Sundahl, Director, Global Space Law CenterA graduate of Stanford University and Yale Law School, Rob James is a San Francisco attorney. He has written articles on energy numeracy, geoengineering, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, baseball stadiums, paper clips, footnotes, and the deaths of the slide rule.

Book Description: The Florida night sky is a source of fascination, inspiration, and enjoyment. Whether your aim is a casual appreciation of the heavens or a serious study of astronomy, The Florida Night Sky will get you started on a rewarding journey of cosmic discovery, beginning with how the known universe is organized and where Florida fits into the picture. Every place on earth has its own singular view of the stars and Florida is no different. Theres an enviable openness to the Florida landscape and flat horizon, allowing for a broader view of the sky in all directions. The warm, snowless winter nights, with their long periods of darkness, are ideal for stargazing, and Florida's position near the tropics offers a view of the four stars in the Southern Cross in the spring and early summer. The two coasts offer stunning views of the sun rising and setting in the water--watch for the Green Flash as the sun finally drops into the ocean on the Gulf Coast. An ideal starting point for those who want to learn about the Florida night sky and enjoy its treasures, this book also serves as a helpful reference for serious amateur astronomers. Step outside, look up, and get acquainted with the Florida night. The rewards will surprise and delight you.
