The First Astronomers by Duane Hamacher

An astrophysicists guide to Indigenous knowledge of Astronomy. A great insight into Australian first peoples knowledge of the stars and related to that from all over the world.. He speaks to many elders , particularly in the Torres straights, about their names and lore for objects and events that predict seasons and weather in complex systems relating to astronomical orbits which many of us never fully grasp as we do not live under the skies nor depend on them for information. The more time we spend out there, the more we see things as first people saw them.

I will never see the shimmering of the major stars or the seasonal and decade long patterns of movements of celestial bodies in quite the same way.
