The book “Moon in the Sky…” consists of two chapters: “The Wonderful World of Selena” and “Return to the Moon.” The first of them tells about the current state of the study of the Moon: its origin, features of rotational motion, nature and internal structure. The second section discusses the problems of further study and development of the Earth's natural satellite with the help of spacecraft and the creation of populated scientific and research-production bases on its surface. The appendices provide basic information about the Moon, a glossary of lunar terms, a chronology of lunar explorations using spacecraft, a map of the visible side of the Moon for observations with binoculars or a school telescope.

The book “Moon in the Sky…” is intended for a wide range of readers.
