From his backyard in 1971 with a small telescope perched on a wooden fruit crate, Steve Massey experienced a close-up view of the ghostly entity known as the Moon. It was his first telescopic encounter and one that would stir up new emotions and visual senses leading to a life-long passion for astronomy.

In ‘Exploring The Moon’, Steve unveils the history of the Moon and its various characteristics and effects on the Earth and its living creatures. He describes the bold Cold War missions of Russia and the United States as they raced one another to the Moon and looks at the resulting science that has helped to expand our knowledge of the Moon and its make-up. Steve also describes a nightly journey along the Moon’s terminator and how to explore the most prominent features through a small, amateur telescope. He will assist you with visual identification of the Moon’s features as seen in the eyepiece of a telescope.

Packed with interesting facts, diagrams, illustrations and a plethora of useful information about telescopes and accessories to view the Moon, ‘Exploring The Moon’ is the ultimate reference for understanding the Moon and how it has played a substantial role in the evolution and behaviour of many species on Earth. So, when next you gaze at this eminent wanderer of the night sky, take a moment to ponder. How might the Earth and even humans have evolved were it not for the very existence of the Moon?
