This survey course covers the history of astronomy; methods of astronomy; the formation of the solar system; the orbital, rotational, and physical characteristics of the planets, moons, asteroids, meteoroids, and comets; and the structure, characteristics, and scale of the Sun, stars, and galaxies.  Students will identify, locate, and specify locations of the visible planets, some constellations, and other astronomical objects visible in the night sky during the course.  Laboratory topics will include sky observations and constellation studies.  Prerequisite: Exemption from or completion of Learning Support competency courses.  (Completion of Math 1010 or higher is recommended, as some concepts of astronomy and some laboratory exercises require the ability to understand and perform some basic algebraic manipulations.)
