Praise

“This lavishly illustrated large format book is a romp…Written in a very friendly and informal manner it is filled with fascinating tidbits about stars, clusters of stars, nebulae, the space between the stars, the interstellar medium, and even some of the historical characters who pondered them, from William Herschel to Wilhelmina Fleming and Annie J. Cannon.”
David H. DeVorkin, Senior Curator, History of Astronomy, National Air and Space Museum
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, Quest: The History of SpaceFlight Quarterly

“There are 1 billion trillion stars in the observable universe. Each star is born and dies, with a unique story to tell. It’s a journey that our own Sun began some 4.6 billion years ago. Cosmic Clouds 3-D: Where Stars Are Born takes readers to the birthplace of stars — in nebule, which are beautiful clouds of dust and that are scattered throughout most galaxies. The book features hundreds of stunning images of nebulae captured by ground-based and space telescopes in unique stereo views that show these stellar nurseries in three dimensions.”
Astronomy Magazine

“I often think the beauty of the night sky is epic enough to rival the revered art that hangs in major galleries around the world. Now this gorgeous book allows us to see them like never before.”
—BBC Science Focus

“The oversized book also offers fullpage-ortwo-page 2-D views from HubbleSpace Telescope and other ground-and-space-based telescopes, which areeven more impressive than the smaller 3-D views. An entire portfolio is devoted to one of the most beautiful clouds, the Veil Nebula, which is the scattered remnants of an exploded star. And the images of planetary nebulae, which are the colorful last gasps of stars similar to the Sun, are especially stunning. Eicher’s text complements the images,offering a history of how astronomers discovered and studied cosmic clouds, how the clouds are born and how they evolve, details on the lives of stars, and other information.”
StarDate Magazine

“A visually appealing book.”
