Astronomy 101

Course Description

This course will teach you everything you've ever wanted to know about astronomy - or at least we'll cover the basics and try to explain what you are curious about. Topics will include (1) an overview of Earth's night sky; (2) our solar system - origin, geography of the components, and interesting things about our little piece of the universe; and (3) the universe - origin, development of galaxies, stars, and elements. We'll have a night observation session and look at the sky through my telescope and enjoy a laser pointer show-and-tell.
