This is a one year course designed as an introduction to astronomy. The first semester will emphasize the solar system; measuring the sky; and such topics as eclipses and the seasons. The second semester will focus on the constellations; stars; and other deep-sky objects such as double stars and nebulae. There is a lab component involving the use of a telescope during after-school hours. Some observation time at home will be required for home labs.
