Oozing the Moon
A Sky and Night Woods Guide to the Galaxy

This remarkable journal chronicles one mans gazing at the sky, mostly at night, and largely upside down. The author has spent a great deal of time outdoors, appreciating the night sky (and the daytime sky too, but mostly the night sky). A lot of his observations have been from an unusual perspective: hanging upside down from a park picnic table, for example, for a new view of trees, of sky, of the stars and planets, and especially of the wonderous, many-faceted moon. The unconventional perspective is also tied to a great sense of fun with language. The wisdom gained from his nocturnal observations coalescs disciplines, philosophies and mythologies from throughout the world, from antiquity to modern times. The book is, in addition to being inspiration, scientifically hip. Its greatest value, though is its enthusiasm and its appreciation of the galaxy we all call home.
