"Growing up in a major city in Malaysia, the sky is always canopied with darkness. Nothing shows. How I wish I had a book like 'What's Hidden in the Sky'; the interactive Shine-A-Light brings constellations home. It returns the brilliant sky to children, and even to city dwellers, like myself, who are deprived of the opportunity to ponder the beauty of the universe." -Dr. Yuan-Sen Ting, Associate Professor in Astronomy and Computer Science, The Australian National University
