[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Astronomy is one of the oldest natural science and a step towards philosophy. When Stone Age humans took first step out of the cave, they were intrigued by the beauty and wonder of the sky. When they turned to an agrarian way of life and began to settle into communities, naturally, their interest must have turned to the “heavens”. Almost every ancient culture, because of the need to predict the coming of the seasons for harvesting, became expert at tracking and predicting the motions of the sun, moon, planets and stars.
Humans have been looking up, trying to explain the universe for as long as there have been people. Astronomy is one of the few sciences where amateurs can still play an active role, especially in the discovery and observation of transient phenomena. Amateur astronomer have made and contributed to many important astronomical discoveries.
Every curious person who gazes at the night sky awakens the sleeping astronomer in oneself. And the purpose of this site is to be a catalyst.
