Astronomy

<<study of the stars>>

This is the scientific study of the stars and other heavenly planets. The vast multitude of stars should cause us to reflect on God’s power, wisdom, and limitless ability as we acknowledge Him as the Creator of the heavens (Ps 8:3, 19:1, 102:25; Isa 40:22).  The wise men who came seeking Jesus understood where to go by observing the stars and their movements (Mt 2:2,9).

Astronomy is not to be confused with astrology.
