In this course we will explore the many wonders of the night sky– from blood red lunar eclipses to the graceful dance of aurora to the diversity of stars overhead. The course will look at the underlying physics of stars and how we can learn about the workings of stars and galaxies. While there will be the occasional formula and some mathematics, the emphasis will be on developing your understanding and enjoyment of astronomy. As well there will be numerous links drawn between astronomical ideas and the arts. If conditions permit there will be an opportunity for a night time observing session.
