This book is an interesting primer on astronomy specially written for young people and the young-at-hearts who wish to learn more about the fascinating stars in the night sky. It presents in an engaging way the naked-eye observations of the night sky over the equator over a period of one month, without the use of telescopes. It captures the changes and movements of the moon, the stars and the planets in the night sky and explains in an easy-to-understand fashion how and why these changes happen. The book provides a number of useful charts to guide the readers in tracking the most prominent stars in the night sky near the equator. It also shows the various amazing shapes of the unmistakable and magnificent constellation of Orion in different parts of the world - as standing Orion, reclining Orion and upside down Orion. It further traces how Orion was observed and recorded in ancient Chinese star maps in the context of the development of astronomy in world history.
