The study of planets, stars and even black holes are all a part of Astronomy. While much of space stays the same, it is also ever changing and with the best equipment, even new discoveries can be made. We name stars after loved ones, guide our ways home and wish on debris falling in hopes that its a star and not something man has put in the sky. Today was created by Doug Berger in 1973 while President of the Astronomical Association of Northern California.
Howe to celebrate – Study the sky. Get away from city lights to get to a better view. Become an Astronomer yourself.
