Within this clearly-written guide you will discover solutions to four astronomical mysteries of the past... interactively! • What were the six reasons astronomers just barely missed seeing the true nature of Mars’ surface and thought there were artificial canals? • What was the fiery apparition of the Moon seen by five monks in the year 1178? • What four things could early 20th century observers of Mercury have done to catch the planet’s weird rotation? • What was the little black spot that sparked a 56-year search for the nonexistent inner planet Vulcan? Using this book and internet access (required) you control animations and manipulate 3-D models with your fingers or any pointing device. You will act as an astronomical detective and piece together the answers to all these questions for yourself! (You may get your personal user name and password for internet access to the animations, movies, and Virtual-Reality objects with the publisher's contact information on the last page.)
