What is Astronomy? Well, Astronomy is the process of studying celestial objects in the universe, including galaxies, comets, planets, and stars, as well as the occurrences outside the atmosphere of the planet, including the cosmic background radiation.
It is also the one that is responsible for the celestial objects movement, meteorology, chemistry, physics, and evolution, as well as the development and formation of our universe. It is also the oldest type of science.
Benefits of Making Astronomy as Your Hobby
Astronomy is considered as a good and enjoyable hobby because the participants will enjoy imaging and observing the several celestial objects present in our universe. You can enjoy observing these objects with the use of telescopes, binoculars, or an unaided eye. Even though your goal is not to have scientific research about these celestial objects, you can create your contributions through making some citizen sciences, including watching sunspots, double stars, variable stars, or stars occultation thru both the asteroids and Moon. You can also have the chance to find out transient astronomical events, including supernovae, galactic novae, or comets that are present at the different galaxies.
Maybe you cannot use this hobby as your primary basis of support or income, but I am sure that you will love it compared to the other hobbies you love to do. You can do this even you don’t have advanced academic training or astrophysics about the subject. You can enjoy this hobby with your co-hobbyists or with an expert in this field.
During nighttime is the perfect time for you to watch the view of the sky. It is because nighttime is the time when all the astronomical events and celestial objects are present. Solar eclipses and Sun are some of the astronomical events and celestial objects that can be viewed during the daytime. You may notice that some of your co-hobbyists do not use any binocular items rather than their naked eyes. But you can consider using telescopes or portable telescopes that can be placed in your club observatories or your private room.
You can also consider joining some groups of amateur astronomical programs that usually guide, educate, and give pieces of advice in terms of observing and looking for the celestial objects. You can also be the instrument of promoting astronomy and encouraging other people to include astronomy as one of their hobbies.
To sum it up, astronomy is one of the best hobbies that you can do. Rest assured that you will enjoy it with most especially when you are with your co-hobbyists.
