astronomy, math & weather: at farm



Now showing at farm in Wellfleet, MA.

2009 has been declared the International Year of Astronomy by the UN. In 1609, Galileo Galilei first recorded astronomical observations made with a telescope. Also, Astronomia Nova was published in the 17th century, in which Johannes Kepler examines the motion of Mars. I am forever fascinated by this science, and how the movement of celestial bodies affects us in our daily lives.
