For young readers (and old)

Written by award-winning writer and astrophysicist Dr Ragbir Bhathal and his daughter Jenny Bhathal, this book reveals Australia's Aboriginal and European night-sky heritage to children from their own backyards, recommended for ages 10–14 years.

Discover the stories of the heavens and our understanding of them in this beautiful book.

Generously illustrated with star charts and pictures from the National Library of Australia and with photographs from Australian and overseas astronomers, Australian Backyard Astronomy will captivate younger and older readers alike.

Young readers will be occupied for hours with interesting facts and projects that are practical and fun to do.
