This course will give you a deeper appreciation of the sky and our ever-growing understanding of astronomy. Your guide for this journey through the cosmos is Dr. Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit brother, renowned astronomer, and director of the Vatican's astronomical observatory. In his engaging lectures, you'll deepen your sense of joy as you gaze at the stars and appreciate the profound achievements of their Creator. Astronomy is something everyone can do: it takes no special equipment or deep education to look at the sky. But you first need to know what to look for. With this in mind, Dr. Consolmagno will teach you how to view the sky yourself, recognizing its rhythms and regularities. You will then explore how professional astronomers and Scripture have understood the stars. As you navigate our solar system and other galaxies, you will reflect on the meaning of dark energy, dark matter, and the dark skies themselves. Through all this, you will enrich your prayer life. These talks are not a mere recitation of facts but rather a reminder that, like the stars above, you too are a brilliant and living part of this remarkable universe. By learning how God has created this universe, you will grow closer to the Father of all the universe--the One we call Our Father.
