In this section of the blog you have a series of articles that come to be like my notes on astronomy.
The goal is to have clustered in a single place all the basic information, and in a language understandable even by children, of all the things that any amateur astronomical observations should know.
But the first thing is to understand...
What is astronomy?
Astronomy is an ancient science that began as the study of the stars and their movements. But with the passage of time goes a little bit further and we can say that:
Astronomy is the science that studies all the celestial bodies (stars, planets, galaxies, comets, etc.), its location, and the laws of their movements throughout the Universe.
Meaning of astronomy
The origin of the word astronomy it is in classical Greece of antiquity. And consists of: "astron"(stars), and "nomos"(the order or rule).
This leads us to say that, from the beginning of the story, we speak of astronomy as the study of the objects that we observe in the sky and the laws that make their movements.
