When night falls, everything is dark. Or is it? The moon shines with a pale light. A car drives along the street, and when its headlights flash, two bright dots run by. Is it a cat’s eyes? Or a fox’s? Stars twinkle in the night sky and sometimes even the bright belt of the Milky Way is visible.
This just-lovely non-fiction picture book explores everything that glows, glitters and shines in the night. Visit the dark forest, the deep ocean and the shadows of the city, and discover fun facts about the strange and wonderful light sources on Earth and in the sky, from the moon and the stars to glow-in-the-dark insects, luminous underwater creatures, lighthouses, fireworks and phosphorescence.
