Overview

Picture this. You are enjoying a great summer evening on the beach with a group of friends. As night falls and the stars begin to appear, there’s someone in the group who can name every star, every constellation and quote the historical significance of each one!

Has this ever happened to you? How would YOU like to be front and center for a change? Here's how you can quickly and easily impress your friends with your knowledge by learning about astronomy.

Listen, it doesn't matter if you know next to nothing about astronomy, you can make it your hobby extraordinaire!

Allow yourself to drift back in time to when you were a small child lying on your back on the newly mown grass staring at the panorama above you.

You were intent on being very quiet thinking that if you didn’t bring attention to yourself your parents wouldn’t tell you to run off to bed. Your eyes were filled with wonder and you were almost mesmerized by the questions that filled your mind.

Maybe your children are of an age where they are asking questions about the stars. Sure, we can all pretty much point out the Big Dipper, but there is so much more we can learn and teach our children.

You don’t have to become an expert but there is much historical significance in the stars and learning more about them can be fun and educational.
