Frontiers in Astronomy notes combined- weeks 1-7 Intro  Astronomy is a natural science  greek words ‘astro’ + ‘Nomos’ (the law of stars)  initially was the science of heavens but in a narrower sense  mapping the night sky  recording the position of the stars and planets  unusual events : eclipses, supernova explosions, etc  today vastly expanded that initial scope  today it deals with the study of the UNIVERSE  the collection of all that exists a collection of celestial objects (stars, planets, comets, nebulae, galaxies, etc)  universe is everything  almost 99% of all brightness in the sky are stars  the sun is a star too, but it’s so close that its brightness dominates during the day, obscures any object in the sky  the stars seem to be fixed on the background sky but the planets seem to have more relative to fixed stars after a week or so  comets are much smaller than stars, have a tail  The universe is also called cosmos by the ancient greek philosopher Pythagoras  the word cosmos means order but also ornament to denote the order and beauty one finds in the universe  an orderly and harmonious system as opposed to a disorderly one or chaos  appears static to us but it is an extremely active entity in reality  today is primarily concerned with:  evolution  physics laws  chemistry  composition  meteorology
