Story and art by E. J. Barnes. A dramatization of a true story.
Caroline Herschel (1750—1848) was an astronomer living and working in England in the 1780s and '90s, starting as an assistant to her famous brother, William Herschel, who discovered the planet eventually called Uranus.
Starting her observing career by discovering a nebula that had not been cataloged by Messier, she eventually discovered eight (possibly nine) comets, documented numerous corrections to John Flamsteed's Atlas of the Heavens, and wrote up an exhaustive star catalog of the Northern Hemisphere that was published by the Royal Astronomical Society of England.
28pp, b&w (ink with ink wash). Appropriate for all ages.
