Astronomy, the oldest natural science, is the study of celestial objects such as planets, moon, stars, comet, galaxies, nebulae, black holes, super novae, white dwarf and deep space activities and exploration.

Astronomy date back to antiquity, with its origin in mythology, religion and astrological practices, vestiges of which are still found in Astrology. The belief that human affairs are influenced by the celestial objects, some cultures use astronomical observation for astrological prognostication.  Egyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge, Mayan and Aztec temples are complex observatories designed for direction-finding, predicting astronomical phenomena and determining religious functions and harvesting time.

Astronomical objects emit radiations covering all frequencies of electromagnetic spectrum. The choice of telescope depend on the observing frequency. Some parts of the spectrum can be observed from the Earth’s surface, while others are observable from high altitudes or outside the earth’s atmosphere.

Astronomy also is a young science. Only in last fifty or sixty years we have begun to understand the principles which drive the universe and create objects like black holes, neutron stars and other astronomical objects and phenomena.

We should explore the wonders and mysteries in the deep space and share our knowledge with those who are curious. Every curious person gazing at the night sky is an astronomer. In this section we will know more about the history of astronomy, astronomy as a science, latest news about our universe and updates on our space exploration projects.
