“A fearsome hunter lives in the night sky.” If you look closely and use your imagination, you’ll see the constellation Orion. This book introduces the science and history behind constellations by explaining the ancient study of stars and their transformation into patterns that represent mythological characters. Hubble telescope photographs and a variety of depictions of Orion the hunter enliven the text, which includes interesting facts about brightly colored nebulae and the Greek myth of Orion’s adventures. Back matter includes a glossary, suggestions for further reading, Web-site recommendations, and an index.
