The Elements of Theoretical and Descriptive Astronomy
by Charles J. White - J. Wiley , 1909
I present the main principles of Astronomy in a form adapted to the elementary course of instruction which is commonly given at colleges and the higher grades of academies. I selected those topics which seemed to me to be the most important.
by James N. Pierce , 2013
A book written for teachers (and parents) of students in grades K-6. The astronomy topics it covers are those most commonly found in these grade levels: Earth and Sun; night and day; seasons; phases of the Moon; eclipses; solar system; planets...
Hubble Space Telescope: Discoveries
- NASA , 2012
The book takes the reader on a tour of Hubble's most significant science successes, combined with some of the telescope's technology and history. The book details Hubble's work in cosmology, planetary science and galactic science.

The notes cover: astronomy's place in the scientific endeavor, scientific method, astronomy without a telescope, history of astronomy, Newton's law of gravity, relativity theories, electromagnetic radiation, telescopes, solar system, the stars, etc.
A Handbook of Descriptive and Practical Astronomy
by George F. Chambers - Oxford At The Clarendon Press , 1889
The work covers: the planets of our solar system; eclipses; gravity and tides; phenomena including aberration and refraction; comets; chronological astronomy; stars; astronomical instruments; the history of astronomy; and meteoric astronomy.
- Wikibooks , 2009
This book introduces the advanced secondary or beginning university student to the process that revealed the rich tapestry of the universe to humanity, presenting astronomy not only as a field of knowledge, but also as a human endeavor in science.
An Introduction to Astronomy
by Forest Ray Moulton - The MacMillan Company , 1916
It has been assumed that the reader has an interest in the wonderful universe which surrounds him, and that he has arrived at such a stage of intellectual development that he demands the reasons for whatever conclusions he is asked to accept.
Astronomy of To-day
by Cecil Goodrich Julius Dolmage - Seeley and co. , 1910
