The Facts on File Dictionary of Astronomy


This dictionary is one of a series designed for use in schools. It is intended for students of astronomy, but we hope that it will also be helpful to other science students and to anyone interested in the subject.This fifth edition has been extensively revised and extended and now contains over 3700 headwords covering the terminology of modern astronomy. A totally new feature of this edition is the inclusion of over 1500 pronunciations for terms that are not in everyday use. A number of appendixes have been included containing useful astronomical data. There is also a list of Web sites and a bibliography. A guide to using the dictionary has also been added to this latest version of the book.
