Who has not gazed with wonder at the night sky, especially from a dark site far away from city lights? The great canopy of stars stretching overhead suggests that our world is part of a vastly larger cosmos. But how large is it? Where do we fit in? And how did it all begin? These questions have puzzled stargazers for thousands of years, and the search for answers helped spark the great advances of the scientific revolution in the 16th and 17th centuries. But only in our own time has the full picture of the true immensity, variety, and surpassing strangeness of the Universe come into focus.

In a world without artificial lights, the night sky was ablaze with over a thousand stars, whose patterns illustrated stories people had heard since childhood. Thus, ancient people viewed the sky differently than we do. Skywatching was crucial to daily life, since the motions of the heavens served as timekeeper, calendar, compass, and almanac for planning when to plant and harvest. The perfect regularity of celestial cycles was the only guaranteed aspect of life and inspired a wide range of religious and philosophical views, as different cultures struggled to grasp the unseen forces that govern the cosmos.

Exercises in Astronomy: Revised and Extended Edition of “Practical Work in Elementary Astronomy” by M.G.J. Minnaert by J. Kleczek
English | PDF | 1987 | 320 Pages | ISBN : 9027724091 | 23.5 MB

Students get a deeper understanding of a subject by a concentrated involvement in it. "One learns astronomy best by doing it" or "Learning astronomy by getting one's fingers dirty" - such was the philosophy of astronomy learning of Professor Minnaert. He contributed much to astronomy teaching. The first edition of his book "Practical Work in Elementary Astronomy" (published by D. Reidel 1969) emphasized classical astronomy and was intended for students of physics following their first course of astronomy. The book was much favoured by students and teachers of physics and astronomy in many countries. It has been long out of print and a new edition was often asked for.
