Part of the Patrick Moore’s Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


An overview is presented, with images, to introduce the vast range of colored objects and events on Earth and throughout the universe. Rainbows over steaming volcanoes, aurora in the frozen north, rocks on Mars and distant galaxies are all colored, and some are accessible to your compact digital camera. False colors help to bring out hidden features or illustrate physical or chemical properties. This book is all about colors supported by a large number of photographs from amateurs and professionals all around the world.
