Description - How to Gaze at the Southern Stars by Edward Wilson

Fifty thousand years ago, a small family of our ancestors huddled around a campfire. Robbed of vision, they were vulnerable in the darkness; the night is the time of the predator. As they listened to the crackle of the fire and the sounds of the night, they looked upwards. What, they wondered, were those mysterious lights in the sky? So begins astronomer Richard Hall's engrossing account of the stars as seen from Down Under! Today scientists know a great deal about the universe we live in. Photos have even been taken of the planet Mars, 35 million miles away. But for most people it's all still a mystery.
