About the book
As our nearest cosmic neighbor, the moon has been an object of worship; a fount of myths; the subject of countless films, books, and works of art; and the focus of our early ventures into space. It is a source of wonder for us in its many guises and phases, sizes and colors.

Full of spectacular images, The Moon explores how our celestial sister works her magic on the earth, how she has profoundly influenced our beliefs and our cultures, and how she continues to affect our oceans and our science. This is the full picture, from the moon’s fiery and violent birth four billion years ago to the near future, when we will once again stand on its dusty surface.
