I Love Astronomy

The starry stars and their galaxial galaxies 2,260 People

    I'm hoping to go to college

    for astronomy, if everything works out in life. The night sky is my stress relief, my outlet. Sometimes when you lay down outside, and look at the stars, it's just so beautiful, and mysterious. There's so many things out there, and we can only see that little of them...

    Giant Diamonds In Space

    Cancer, the crab, scuttles high across the sky on January nights. It's not that much to look at -- a sprinkle of faint stars between Gemini and Leo. One of those stars is quite a treasure, though . It has at least five planets, making it one of the busiest planetary systems...

    I have never seen the night sky without light

    pollution. I have heard you can see our galaxy. Before I die I want to be taken to a place so I can see all the stars with my own eyes.By the way, this is a real picture. Thomas O'Brien captured this self-portrait under the Milky Way at Great Basin National Park in Nevada.

    Finding An Asterism (or Constellation If You Prefer)

    Last night my Girl Friend, Brenda, asked if I could identify an asterism that looked like a cross that was about overhead in October. I first looked at my planisphere and saw that Cygnus, the Swan, contains an asterism that is a very good cross. In fact, sometimes Cygnus is...

    I always wanted to be an astronomer.

    I would go to the library and read books on astronomy and cosmology. However, I realized that math prevented me from achieving my dream. So I went with my next option: design and illustration. So one day, while I was at work, I saw a news article about the sun's solar flares and...

    Someone asked me recently

    why the planet Venus was named as such. I had no idea why it was given that name, but "I don't know" is a shǐtty answer, especially considering I'm an astronomy major and my friends expect me to know this stuff, so I decided to come up with something instead. The name Venus...

    I'm trying to work really hard in school

    so I can get a scholarship to MIT and study the science field I like. I've always dreamed of getting into MIT since I was a kid and working in its astronomical observatory.

    My main goal in life is to be an astronomer.

    I've always had a fascination with space, and how it works. When I was about 7, I got a telescope for Christmas, is was really cheap but it still kinda worked. I would spend hours just sitting outside, looking at the stars. And when I'd hear about meteor showers I'd stay...

    I could just gaze at the sky forever.

    I wish I knew all the constellations, at least all the major ones. I would spend hours on the roof if I could.

    What do you think the new planet should be

    called if it got confirmed? I think the given name Nine already sounds cool.

    New Way To Visualize How Earth Moves Around The Sun

    earth does not just turn around the sun... it spirals around the sun while the sun spirals through the galaxy. thinking that the earth simply turns around the sun, surprisingly, is equivalent to thinking the earth is flat!

    I've always been interested in astronomy

    I actually plan on majoring in astronomy.

    I've wanted to do that since I was really little. When I was a toddler my mom always said I would carry blankets outside and look at the "glowing rocks" apparently what I called them. The universe is so fascinating. I love learning about it, I love looking at it, I love...
