Seeing in the Dark aims to redefine the standards of quality in nonfiction science programming for television, and is meant to introduce viewers to the wonders of the night sky, making casual stargazing or serious amateur astronomy a part of their lives. This program follows in the footsteps of Timothy Ferris two prior PBS specials The Creation of the Universe and Life Beyond Earth.

The Blu-Ray version looks better overall than the DVD, though some scenes do not look better to my eye. There is a great commentary track by Ferris on both the DVD and Blu-Ray versions (there is no extra content on the Blu-Ray) that is so complete and interesting it is almost like watching an alternate version. The book form is much more in-depth, as you'd expect. Ferris himself reads the audio version, and he
has the perfect relaxed voice to take you into this wonderful world. if you have any interest in astronomy this work is for you. i cannot recommend it enough.
Finally, when I attended the late John Dobson's 90th birthday party at the Randall Museum some years ago, I spotted Timothy Ferris. When I approached him to tell him how much I enjoyed "Coming of Age in the Milky Way" and his other wonderful books, he seemed almost embarrassed to be recognized.
