    Astronomy (from Greek: ἀστρονομία) is a natural science that studies celestial objects and uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain their origin and s of interest include planets, moons, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and nt phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, quasars, blazars, pulsars, and cosmic. Let us now look briefly back into history. Much of modern Western civilization is derived in one way or another from the ideas of the ancient Greeks and Romans, and this is true in astronomy as well.
