Not Enough

I believe more people would enjoy astronomy if only they knew about it.  Schools don't do nearly enough to teach children about astronomy.  They teach about the earth's star system and a little bit about the different types of galaxies, but they don't go into the detail that kids need to understand the true magnificense of the universe.

I completely agree! I took an Astronomy class at my school, and I already knew all that stuff because of my father. I wish they could go in-depth, but they don't have enough time and it was only a semester class.

I agree with you on this one. I've always been interested in astronomy since I was a kid. the constellation patterns, the moon, the universe; everything about it is just so amazing.. so fascinating.. in fact there are not enough words to really express how fascinating the universe can be. So much to learn, and so much we have not really discovered yet.

Took a class in astronomy in college. I will admit I didn't really like it at first (mainly because I had a lot of other things to do and the other classes I had to take were eating up with the other things I had to learn with the astronomy class) but eventually things worked out. Wished there were classes that were just devoted to learning about the planets, stars, etc.. though. That would be nice.

you are right! That's exactly what I wanted to write for my story, but..nevermind :D, I like astronomy too, and I always told my parents, if schools would ever have a class for astronomy..but anyway I want to work as an astronomer, so eventually I'll go to an astronomy university, and learn in there, anyway, I think that not a lot of people know about it or cares..but I do, i mean there are so many things in there, amazing things..we need to discover, and it's such a quiet place, not like earth, it's not quiet it's silent, really silent, and that's what I like about it, and the stars, that look like they have lots fo mysteries in them..hmm, It makes a person wonder. =)
