Astronomy is the study of what is beyond our atmosphere. It involves the observation of celestial objects, including planets, stars, nebula, and other galaxies. A good pair of binoculars or a telescope can provide you with a spectacular view of the night sky, while star charts can guide the way. Even without these tools, all you really need to get started is to step outside your door and look up !
