About the Author

Ellen Jackson is the award-winning author of more than fifty fiction and nonfiction books for children. Like her father, an amateur astronomer, Ellen has been interested in planets, stars, and galaxies since she was a child. She remembers family star parties, at which neighbors were invited to gaze through her father's telescope at an eclipse of the moon or other astronomical objects.
