HAVE FUN COLORING MYTHIC GODS AND GODDESSES of the PLANETS in our NEW, EXPANDING SOLAR SYSTEM—from THE SUN out to UNDISCOVERED PLANET 9!
Astronomers are discovering more and more planetoids in the far reaches of our solar system. These new, distant neighbors are being named for lesser-known gods and goddesses from around the world. Many planets have familiar names from Greek and Roman mythology. New ones are from Hawai’i, India and Lithuania, from the Inuit, Etruscan, Rapa Nui, Tongva, Wayu’u and Iroquois peoples, and even from J.R.R. Tolkien, who wrote The Lord of the Rings. This book introduces their stories. A global map shows their geographical origins. Sky maps, tables and listings of new names and categories give basic astronomical information. For ages 8 to adult.
