How To Become Involved In Astronomy
People have been interested in observing and learning about the Universe since early times. Today many people enjoy Astronomy as a hobby and some go on to Astronomy as a career. People from many professions are involved in the study of the Universe. Scientists, engineers, computer programmers, educators, astronauts, technicians, office workers, writers, and administrators all make important contributions.
Amateur Astronomy
Astronomy is a field in which anyone can participate and even make useful discoveries! Amateur astronomers, often using only a pair of good binoculars, have discovered numerous comets. By using more powerful telescopes, amateur astronomers have discovered novae and supernovae. Many people build their own telescopes and observatories to study and photograph objects in the universe. Astrophotography has become a very popular and enjoyable hobby. Also, anyone with a computer can now participate in SETI's search for life in the universe . So far about two million people have participated. Below are some links to useful sites for anyone interested in amateur astronomy.
