Where is That Moon?
image from Bob Crelin
Planispheres have been around for generations, guiding users through nightly and seasonal starfields, so why is it only now* that a Moonisphere has come into existence? There are of course the more nerdish book explaining phases, but his Moon wheel stands alone, and may finally teach kids (and their parents and teachers) about the movement of that marvelous satellite around our globe.
- Maybe there have been earlier ones - does anyone know of any?
The Moon Gazer's Wheel is available here.
