Astronomy Lab

 

Astronomy is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics and chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects and phenomena and their evolution. Objects of interest include planets, moons, starts, galaxies, and comets; the phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, all phenomena that originate outside Earth’s atmosphere are within the purview of astronomy. Astronomy is one of the oldest of the natural sciences.

  Intersect with Mythology

Behind every constellation is a story. Ancient cultures all looked for pictures in the sky, and many ancient people used the stars as a canvas for storytellers to pass on traditions, myths, and fables.

Astronomy Helps us Understand the Rhythms of our Daily Lives

God gave us the sun, moon, and stars to serve as “signs and for seasons, and for days and years”. Astronomy helps us to understand the everyday realities we take for granted, like clocks, calendars, and leap years. The rising and setting of the sun establishes our daily rhythms. The passing of seasons determine our yearly rhythms.

 Its Fun and Attracts Young People to the Science 

 

Every child love to talk about stars, planets, supernova, moons, comets and asteroids. Astronomy usually ranks up there with dinosaurs for sparking interest in the sciences

Goal of Astronomy Lab

 

The main goal of this lab is for students to discover how astronomers use physics and observations with telescopes to gain an understanding of how the universe works. To that end, kids will learn many physics concepts as applied to astronomy, and follow the process of doing astronomical observations and measurements. These observations include ones that you will make, both with naked eye and with a telescope.
