Episode 512: Space Boy
I think I see the big dipper!

Astronomy is the study of the stars, and has been one of man's greatest passions. With telescope in hand, we've studied the stars and looked to the heavens for a clue as to how life, as we know it, began. Telescopes bring far away things right up into focus, allowing us to see much more than we would with just the naked eye. Amateur stargazers need little more than a map, a clear, dark night, and a telescope. So, the next time you set your sights for some sky-high excitement, grab a telescope and look to the stars. Wow, out-of-this-world!
