Crash Course Astronomy is a new weekly series by Phil Plait, done under the auspices of Hank and John Green’s Crash Course educational videos and sponsored by PBS Digital Studios. The first episode, Introduction to Astronomy, is shown above, and Phil Plait describes what astronomy is, who astronomers are, and the origins and developments of astronomy. It’s informative and interesting, and well worth watching each week.
Just don’t call it astrology. Onwards!
