Bright Sky, Starry City free pdf Phoebe helps her dad set up telescopes on the sidewalk outside his store. It's a special night -- Saturn and Mars are going to appear together in the sky. But will Phoebe be able to see them with all the city lights? Raindrops begin to fall, followed by lightning and thunder.

A glossary and recommended further reading are also included.
