    Hello friends

    Astronomy is among the oldest natural sciences. Each astronomy involved observing the regular patterns of the motions of the visible celestial objects like the sun, moon , planets and the stars.

    Earlier, the astronomers were able to differentiate between stars and planets. They identified celestial objects with gods and spirits.

    I would actually say that the act of associating stars and planets with gods and spirits would be better described as falling into the categories of mystism or psycology myself, but it almost seems hardly worth arguing about.


    The most important thing I have learned about the internet is that it needs lot more kindness and patience.
