Format: Paperback
This book tells the story of the discovery of Neptune in 1846 (how astronomers located the planet thanks to Uranus not behaving itself in its orbit); and our knowledge of the planet leading up to Voyager 2's encounter in 1989.

Patrick Moore was not only a wonderful boradcaster and promoter of astronomer, he was an outstanding astronomical historian - always researching his subject in depth. Patrick had the ability of making something complicated sound very straight forward. This book is no exception.

For those who wish to take the story of Neptune one more step, may I recommend the brilliant Atlas of Neptune which charts Voyager 2's encounter and the startling discoveries made.
