See What Galileo Saw with Your Own Eyes!

What's Your Favorite?

Why have the objects in the night sky so enthralled mankind? Over the centuries, the stuff of astronomy has provided everything from a means to navigate to the perfect romantic setting. Yet from the beginning of history, astronomy brought to our species a more important quality.

Plato states in Laws our philosophical beginning necessarily starts with “the kind of nature which is said to exist in the stars.” Indeed, the whole concept of observation came about when Aristotle attempted to explain his physics though what he saw in the heavens. Astronomy soon became a method of measuring not only time and distance, but also an approach for measuring our own position within the grand scheme.
