If you have a budding astronomer in your family then you might want to take a quick look at The Sky At Night - Answers To Questions From Across The Universe book that The Book People have on offer - they're selling it for £4.99 instead of its recommended full price of £14.99.
If you're my age, or slightly younger, you'll remember the totally bonkers, but utterly lovable, Sir Patrick Moore of The Sky at Night fame - you knew you were up really late if you caught that on TV!
I have always loved looking at the stars and the moon - that we're looking at history when we look at the night sky completely fascinated me; just think about it, the light we see from the stars has taken millions of years to get here and it's entirely possible that some of the stars we 'see' aren't actually there any more!
Of course, youngsters today have the amazing Professor Brian Cox for all things astro physics (I have a bit of an intellectual crush on Prof Cox) but you won't go wrong with anything written by the 'father' of all TV astronomers Sir Patrick Moore.
The Sky At Night - Answers To Questions From Across The Universe is packed full of Universe facts, details about various space missions and almost anything else astrological a youngster could wish to know.
