The book was the culminating product of a learning expedition that included sky journals from night observations and collaboration with a physicist from the University of Rochester.

Students shared their writing and illustrations with the public at a celebration of learning held at the planetarium of the Rochester Museum and Science Center, where they explained and demonstrated the concepts that the book described.
