National Geographic’s stunning rendition of the constellations’ glittering lightshow is now available in paperback.

Here are the stories of 10 great constellations – from Persons to Hercules, including Pegasus, Argo, Andromeda and Cassiopeia. Jacqueline Mitton sets contemporary fact against ancient legend; and Christina Balit portrays each constellation in loving detail. Drawing on the eternal lure of the universe, this makes an exciting introduction to the figures dominating our night sky.
