This is an introduction to the wonderful topic of Astronomy - the study of all that exists beyond our Earth. The course examines the characteristics of the bodies of the Solar System presenting interesting information about the planets and their moons. The course will also deal with stars, nebulae and galaxies. The course is designed as an introduction. No previous astronomical background is required. However, it will augment and support the student who has either previous knowledge or a high interest in the field.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
