From ancient times to now, the world keeps on expanding not in size but science.
The way of endless searching revealed many treasures hindered in the earth, and also we have explored the things that are beyond our imagination.
So,’Astronomy’ is one of the great mysteries, and it still explores many things. The scientists made it visible to everyone.
The word Astronomy originated from the Greek word, is natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. The more general term for explaining astronomy is it examines everything originates outside the earth’s atmosphere.
It is one of the oldest natural science. The early civilization in recorded history made methodological observations of the night sky. Amateurs play a vital role in astronomy.
Amateur astronomers have helped with many important discoveries, such as finding new comets.
Still have a question, where it’s the origin?
I will list the origin from prehistoric times.
Origin of astronomy
In early historical times, astronomy has only observations and predictions of the moving objects that are visible to the naked eye. The primary purpose of the book is to predict the seasons, an essential factor in Knowing when to plant crops, and in understanding the length of the year.
Before the invention of instruments like the telescope, the observations and studies of stars were conducted using the naked eye, quite hard, isn’t it?.
As civilization developed, the astronomical observations were assembled and ideas on the nature of the universe began to develop.
The development of the telescope paved the way for modern astronomy. Space telescopes have enabled measurements in parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that normally blurred or blocked by the atmosphere. The advancement of science and technology have many ranges of improvement.
Who else doesn’t?
Want to spend time on astronomy?
Because it is fascinating. It improves knowledge that’s beyond our world.
Now it’s time to choose the astronomical books. The best book will come only if you are the right one for that content. So search the books that suit your needs.

With information on the nature of the universe, the motion of the earth, modern telescopes, astrophotography, and even a comprehensive star atlas, and therefore, it is an encyclopedia that gives a dazzling and expansive look at the universe.
This book is suitable for both students and astronomy enthusiasts. It covers all the constellations and planetary charts with entries on every 88 constellations and notable celestial objects that lie within them. It also has a monthly chart showing a map of the night sky throughout the year.
7. Pathways to Astronomy
Steven Schneider wrote this book in 2017.
This book was rated about 4.56 out of 5. This book separates the introductory astronomy into its parts.
The mysterious astronomy was divided into 86 units in this book. These units are tied up together for those who want to read the text as a book. This book also gives a way to skip some groups altogether.
Professors can customize it based on their courses. They can simplify this unit for easy self-study and also give a detailed lecture to know it more profound and rich knowledge source.
So I think I gave my best book resources for reading and knowing good things.
Enjoy reading and exploring.
