New Mullaney Book: "Celebrating the Universe!"



By Glenn A. Walsh
Reporting for SpaceWatchtower

A new book, Celebrating the Universe!, introduces the reader to the wonders of the celestial heavens, with a focus on the "soul" of the night sky. The author, James Mullaney, is a lifelong astronomer who has served as Curator of Exhibits and Astronomy at Pittsburgh's original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science and Staff Astronomer at the Allegheny Observatory. He was also Director of the DuPont Planetarium on the campus of the University of South Carolina, Aiken.

James Mullaney has authored several books and publications including the classic, The Finest Deep-Sky Objects (with Wally McCall, reprint from the Sky and Telescope Magazine,1978), The Cambridge Atlas of Herschel Objects (with Wil Tirion, 2009), and Star Checking Your Edmund Telescope (1977).

Celebrating the Universe! goes beyond science to explain the personal benefits of communing with the night sky. Perhaps the first book of its kind, this book also goes into little known aspects of stargazing including therapeutic relaxation, celestial meditation, and looking at astronomy from a spiritual perspective.

This travel guide to the stars, available in both paperback and e-book formats, gives the beginning stargazer tips on how to observe the wonders of the night sky. It also explains more about the popular visual objects in the sky including the Sun, Moon, planets, comets, meteors, asteroids, artificial satellites, the many different types of stars, galaxies, and celestial clouds known as nebulae.
