Discovering Astronomy is a college-level introductory astronomy textbook now in its sixth edition. The new edition is not only up-to-date, but continues and expands upon its unique pedagogical features: an emphasis on understanding the nature of science; its use of in-text inquiries; chapter discoveries. The chapter summaries help to emphasize the nature of science by grouping the chapter’s ideas into observations, theory, and conclusions. 

New to this edition are Critical Observations, which illustrate specific examples throughout astronomy of how a specific observation allowed astronomers to choose one theory over the competing ideas. End-of-chapter questions have a new section called Putting It All Together containing questions asking the student to evaluate and synthesize ideas. The other end-of-chapter questions, Summary Questions and Applying Your Knowledge, are questions emphasizing other realms of Bloom’s taxonomy of cognitive domains.
