What’s that colorful glow in the night sky? Perfect for star gazers, this clearly written volume explains what causes auroras (the northern and southern lights) and when and where to see them. Interesting historical facts are also included, and a numbered list of the steps in an aurora’s formation wraps up the book. Spectacular colorful photographs provide visual appeal. Bolded words throughout appear in a glossary; further reading and an index make up the rest of the back matter.

Series Review

Rajczak directs readers’ eyes skyward to observe a variety of phenomena. Although many of the images are stock photos, the variations in layout and inclusion of informative fact boxes and captions make these volumes solid introductions. Clear, well-labeled diagrams help explain topics such as refraction of light through a prism and orbits of comets. Step-by-step reviews of how lightning, rainbows, and auroras form conclude the volumes on those topics, reinforcing what students have just read. The other titles conclude with information on how to spot comets or shooting stars. Each book stands alone and can be purchased to update or supplement existing resources. Consider purchasing Comets and Stars together because of the close relationship of the topics.
