Description

Astronomy is a fascinating science that has sparked wonder in people for generations. In this engaging class, we will look at creation by studying astronomy.

Astronomy students will start the year off by studying the earth and moon and then the rest of the solar system, including the Sun, the terrestrial planets, gas giants, asteroids, meteors, and comets.

Along with studying the unique features of the planets, we will look at Newton’s law of gravity and Kepler’s Laws of planetary motion.

Next, we’ll move further out into space looking at the stars, black holes, and galaxies and identifying key features of the night sky. As we discuss the stars we will also look at the physics of telescopes. We will also consider the apologetic arguments surrounding Astronomy. For example, why did a famous atheist, Jastrow, say: “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.” In God and the Astronomers. 

Through the year of the course, students will be given updates of important astronomical events that they can observe throughout the year; for example meteor showers. 

There will be time for in-class discussion, interactive simulations to understand planetary motion, an end-of-semester presentation, and an escape room “test.”
