Astronomy is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It’s a science that does a lot of observing the skies, but it’s more than just star gazing. What is astronomy used for? What types of astronomy are there? Do you have a favorite constellation and/or planet? Let’s learn together about the sky beyond our backyards.
