Astronomy is the observation and study of the universe and everything that is within. When you are simply looking up into the starry night sky, you are doing astronomy.

What are black holes, how many planets are there orbiting other stars, what is the magnetar and would you want to be near one? All of these questions, and more, await answers. Are you ready for the challenge? Take an astronomy course and explore.
