Review

A tour of the arctic universe awaits readers of The Arctic Sky. Constellations, star lore, legends and mythology, the sun, moon, planets, "shooting stars," and atmospheric phenomena such as aurora borealis, are explored from a variety of perspectives. Combining interviews with the Inuit elders and the historical records of arctic explorers and other keen observers, The Arctic Sky is a memorable journey through the Arctic night.
