Summary, etc.:
"In 1719 a red sky alarmed Puritans. In 1883 sunsets blazed like fire. In 1909 Christmas shoppers gaped at a mystery airship. In 1910 a comet brought fears of poison gas. In 1925 the moon covered the sun while watchers shivered. In 1957 a moving point of light ushered in the Space Age. From the reign of King George I to the Cold War, these are stories of the skies over Willimantic, Connecticut." -- Back cover.
