"It can be tough for beginners to learn the constellations. Standard star charts contain so much information that they are confus

About the Author
Lafcadio has a scale model of the solar system in her living room, and it has been there longer than most of the furniture (since way back when Pluto was still a planet). Lafcadio has been teaching her fellow Earthlings about the various wonders of nature for over ten years, but her favorite subject to teach has always been astronomy. Lafcadio spends most of her time in the Pacific Northwest sleeping, avoiding the sun and learning to make things.
