The science which treats of the celestial bodies, of their magnitudes, motions, distances, periods of revolution, eclipses, constitution, physical condition, and of the causes of their various phenomena.
The study of everything that is not on or of the earth. (Could include bits of rock that fall from the sky.) A very hopeful pseudo-science since the vast majority of the subject matter is so far away that no one now living will probably ever directly see it. These people make assumptions about stuff far away based on observations made in our close astronomical neighborhood. The nearest celestial body outside our local solar system sent it's LIGHT our way four years ago. Therefore ALL astronomical observations are historical in nature.
The science concerned with celestial bodies and the observation and interpretation of the radiation received in the vicinity of the earth from the component parts of the universe (McGraw Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)
The scientific study of the Universe and what it contains (planets, stars, galaxies, etc.), and how these things formed and evolved over time. Not to be confused with astrology, which is a set of beliefs about the influence of heavenly bodies on human affairs. Astrology is not generally accepted to be a science.
The science that studies the positions, motions, and evolution of heavenly bodies and phenomena beyond Earth. Greek astronomia came to us via Latin and Old French and literally means 'watch the stars.'.The Latin term astrologia was the standard for studying the stars until the Greek astronomia was later introduced. In fact, the terms Astronomy and Astrology were once opposites of what they are today. Originally, astronomy signified 'divination' and astrology signified 'observation'. It wasn't until the 17th century that our current definitions were established.
"Law of the stars" (Greek: ¥¥¥¥¥, + vouoc) is a science involving earth's atmosphere and beyond. It studies the origins, evolution, physical, and chemical properties of planets, moons, stars, and observed objects.
Astronomy is the science of celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, and galaxies) and phenomena that originate outside the Earth's atmosphere (such as auroras and cosmic background radiation). It is concerned with the evolution, physics, chemistry, meteorology, and motion of celestial objects, as well as the formation and development of the universe. The word astronomy literally means "law of the stars" and is derived from the Greek Î±ÏƒÏ„ÏÎ¿Î½Î¿Î¼Î¯Î±, astronomia, from the words Î¬ÏƒÏ„ÏÎ¿Î½ (astron, "stars") and Î½ÏŒÎ¼Î¿Ï‚ (nomos, "law").
Astronomy is the fourth studio album released by Swedish Power Metal band Dragonland. The album was released in Europe on November 13 and in America on November 28, the Japanese release date is tentatively scheduled for a mid December release and will contain two bonus tracks.
Astronomy is a monthly American magazine about astronomy. Targeting amateur astronomers for its readers, it contains columns on sky viewing, reader-submitted astrophotographs, and articles on new developments in astronomy and astrophysics that are readable by nonscientists.
