Covering topics like stardust, animal navigation, weather, seasons, tides, and more, Colin Stuart shows the interconnectedness of life on Earth and space. The Sun and Moon play an integral role in the water cycle and the tides, and the Moon dictates whether we have chilly winters or sultry summers.
