Have fun coloring astronomical gods and goddesses from the Sun out to remote Sedna and undiscovered Planet 9. Astronomers are discovering more and more planetoids in the far reaches of our solar system. These new distant neighbors are being named for lesser-known gods and goddesses from around the world. Most familiar planets have names from Greek and Roman mythology. New ones are from Hawai'i, India and Lithuania, from the Intuit, Etruscan, Rapa Nui, Tongva, Wayu'u and Iroquois peoples, and even from J.R.R. Tolkien's pre-history of Middle Earth before the hobbits. Many are indigenous creator gods. We need to know about them! This book contains 28 engaging, original coloring pages of mythic images that convey a sense of the culture they come from. Text pages introduce their story lines. A global map shows their geographical origins. Sky maps and tables give updated astronomical information on our new solar system.
