    e-books in Astronomy category Space Nomads by Leota Jean LaPaz, Lincoln LaPaz - Holiday House, Meteoritics is the study of the only tangible entities that reach us from outer space -- the meteorites. We have planned and written this book to be a sound and yet largely nontechnical introduction to the science of meteoritics. The book's nine chapters cover the basics of successful urban viewing, its "enemies" -- weather and streetlights -- and explain how to choose viewing targets and arm yourself with the right "weapons and ammunition" to find them. The book also covers indoor astronomy. Urban Astronomy is an ideal guide to skywatching while combating light.
