Every day the sun moves across the sky and it is light. You can see clouds, birds and airplanes in the daytime. Every night the moon moves across the sky and it becomes dark. You can see stars at night. This nonfiction Beginning-to-Read book contains high-frequency words and content vocabulary. Connecting Concepts pages include a word list along with activities to strengthen early science and literacy skills, such as understanding nonfiction text, science in the real world, science and academic language, fluency, and finding further information. Aligns with Next Generation Science Standards for Grades K-3.
Clear explanations and detailed star charts showing how to find the twenty-five most familiar constellations, as well as interesting astronomical facts about each one. Includes the mythological stories from which their names were derived.
The latest book in the Nature Study Guides series of pocket guides introduces constellations from many cultures, and shows how to find them in the sky.
This book provides a valuable learning tool to facilitate identifying patterns and stars in the sky. Suitable for observers using binoculars and medium size telescopes, this catalog includes star pictures, dot-to-dot outlines of the objects (on a negative photograph for clarity), and an artistic image next to the star patterns. Size, stellar magnitudes, and coordinates are provided, along with north direction, star-hopping instructions and Sky Atlas 2000 references. With the help of this book, the imaginative observer will soon begin to develop a new insight into star patterns, and will start seeing patterns of their own.
Eighteen years ago, a first god body appeared in the Xu family. It had ten divine veins, but the news of it had been leaked out, and ten divine veins had been destroyed. From then on, even though he had the qualifications of a god body, he could no longer cultivate. He had never been known to shake the mountains and rivers; he had never been able to cover the sky with his hands, but he had guided the world; he had never possessed endless abilities, but he had been respected by the world as a teacher; he was destined to not live past twenty, even though he was young and extraordinary.
Using a common format for teaching inquiry-based science, offers fifteen lessons for students in grades K-4 that use picture books to increase understanding of scientific subjects.
"Look up to the sky and make observations with Mr. Cruz's class. From day to night, moon phases, and constellations, there are lots of exciting patterns in outer space that impact life on Earth"--
An indispensable tool for the amateur astronomer. Night Sky Explorer will help you learn everything a beginning stargazer needs to know. Use the included rotating planisphere to figure out which stars are currently visible, and the 128-page book to learn more about each celestial body. Key facts are presented in an easy-to-understand format, and sidebars offer fun trivia and illuminating anecdotes. Star maps feature the dominant constellations at any given time of the year, so you’ll be prepared for planetary enlightenment when the moon rises!
We live in perilous times. We face a host of problems, mostly self-created, that appear to be insurmountable. We need to move beyond the impulses of the primate mind and its habit of separateness into a new human consciousness that would take us to a larger and deeper worldview, and change the way that we do things. Our old system of reality, which has underpinned our progress for the last 400 years, is eroding. Based on cause and effect, it was not large enough. Although quantum physics has thrown up the beginnings of a new framework, it is still largely unformed. Part of that new, emerging reality might be Harmonic Patterns. Held in the invisible depths of Being, these patterns structure all realities as they emerge into the material realm. They orchestrate reality, and provide the order and structure upon which our lives depend. In this book, Don C. Nix proposes that we look closely at Harmonic Patterns and accept them into our reality as companions to cause and effect. Harmonic Patterns are everywhere we look. They are the innate nature of Being, emerging as Being turns itself into the manifest world. We need to make a place for them.

Stephen O'Meara's new and exciting observing guide spotlights an original selection of 109 deep-sky objects that will appeal to sky-watchers worldwide. His 'hidden treasures' include a wonderful assortment of galaxies, open clusters, planetary nebulae and more, all of which have been carefully chosen based on their popularity and ease of observing. None of these objects are included in either the Messier or the Caldwell catalogs, and all are visible in a 4-inch telescope under dark skies. Stunning photographs and beautiful drawings accompany detailed visual descriptions of the objects, which include their rich histories and astrophysical significance. The author's original finder charts are designed to help observers get to their targets fast and efficiently.
