Welcome to my stop on the Visual Galaxy blog tour sponsored by TLC Book Tours! Thanks to TLC for the invitation!
Confession: I’ve become addicted to these National Geographic books. The quality is outstanding as we’ve always expected from Nat Geo, and I learn so much from reading them. Visual Galaxy is exactly what you’d expect and more. It’s our beloved Milky Way in pictures, looking at its past, present, and future.
Visual Galaxy doesn’t stop there, though. It also gives us a glimpse into our galaxy’s position within the vast universe.
I adored this from the cover; I must have stared at it for several minutes. The inside is just as stunning, and I don’t know what else to add other than if you are interested in the Milky Way and beyond, you definitely have to check this one out.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.

This compelling visual journey through our galaxy combines more than 350 photographs, illustrations, and graphics to present the universe as you’ve never seen it before.
Galaxia is a deep dive into the past, present, and future of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. In this mind-expanding visual tour through the cosmos, spectacular photographs are converted into interpretive graphics, starting with the sun and moving outward into space where stars are born, black holes lurk, and planets of diverse size and anatomy spin through their orbit. The final chapters locate our galaxy within the known universe and add a scintillating peek of other exoplanets in the cosmos. Detailed maps and fascinating imagery from recent space missions are paired with clear, authoritative scientific information.
