      Introduction to Astronomy

      Astronomy is intimately connected to our most basic need; the quest to know where we fit in the grand scheme of things. We’re lucky to live in a time when we’ve come to understand the basic rules of planetary motion, stellar evolution, and the origin of the universe. We still strive to reach further. Fortunately, we live in a new Golden Age of Astronomy, where the blend of technology and mathematics has led us to a time when startling discoveries are made almost daily. But the journey is far from over. We still have much to learn about the universe. To that end, Richard Bell, current president and lifetime member of the Kalamazoo Astronomical Society, offers a 12-week introductory online course in astronomy.

      This is a class of personal enrichment. It is not for those that need to fore fill a college science credit, but for people that only care about enhancing their knowledge of the cosmos. As with any course there will be assignments to complete and exams to be taken, but no grades or credits will be given. This is a great way for people to challenge and better themselves while self-quarantining this winter during the pandemic.

      Cost: Payment required - $150/person
