Discovering Astronomy

Discovering Astronomy is a college-level introductory astronomy textbook now in its sixth edition. The full book is comprehensive in its coverage of the field and the background information needed to understand astronomy. The edition is not only up-to-date, but continues and expands upon its unique pedagogical features: an emphasis on understanding the nature of science; its use of in-text inquiries; chapter discoveries. The chapter summaries help to emphasize the nature of science by grouping the chapter’s ideas into observations, theory, and conclusions. Concept videos, made specifically for the book to aid understanding physical concepts, are embedded within the text.


New to this edition are Critical Observations, which illustrate specific examples throughout astronomy of how a specific observation allowed astronomers to choose one theory over the competing ideas.
