Orbital sojourn: looking at the Moon

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

The Moon — that inconstant orb; a glorious bright light in our night sky; an ancient vehicle for human myths and deities; and now a world become known. For thousands of years before the rise of the scientific method, humans gazed at Earth’s one natural satellite, wondered at its nature and worked it into their stories as they struggled to understand their universe and its impact upon them.
