“Astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and leads us from this world to another.” - Plato
Ever looked out the window at night and found yourself staring at the universe, wondering what is up there? This has been a very common question among human beings since the dawn of time since civilization first existed. From the Nubian Monuments to the Egyptian Monuments and Stonehenge - these are archaeological proof from the past that astronomical studies have been a common interest among mankind throughout the ages.
Astronomy essentially is the science of studying objects and phenomena in space, i.e. anything outside the Earth's atmosphere. If you are a beginner of astronomy, you need to know that there is more to this subject than just identifying the stars lighting up the night sky. It also involves understanding how different celestial bodies move and how they influence other celestial bodies.
