Hi Rosemania, welcome.

Learn more than what? It depends on how much you already know, I guess.

If right now you have very little knowledge, you may want a book or website that has pictures with titles like "this is what a galaxy looks like", "here is a comet", etc. You'll need different books when you want to learn what a galaxy actually is, how they form, how they interact, etc. When you get to that stage it's not so easy to learn with only pictures or slideshows.

Maybe you have an example of the type of thing you're looking for?

Hello Rosemania,


Yoiu might try NASA.gov---it does a fairly good job in addressing an appropriate audience---here is one link:

http://www.nasa.gov/


I would say--if you are starting out----take your time to explore the site.

Another is APOD--Astronomy Picture of the Day

Here is that link---http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/
