This course is intended for people who are curious about the stars above! In 15 lectures we will study many topics including what you can see with your unaided eye, motion in the heavens, how our own star “sol” and other stars “work”. As well we will look at planets, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies and finally the biggest view of all – cosmology. Throughout the course there will be many opportunities to see how astronomy also influences poetry, music and the visual arts. A very small amount of mathematics will be used from time to time

Instructor:  Brian Martin
