Maybe you decided it was all a little too difficult and 'scientific'?
Well, I'll show you how to unlock the secrets of the night sky and give you insider knowledge about objects in the heavens and give you the tools to understand why and how we see things as they are and even how to see them better.
Using video, animation and breath-taking images from professional and top amateur photographers and text in clear English, I will show you the wonders of the night sky in an easy to understand format which will have you wondering why you ever thought it was difficult to grasp.
You will easily absorb the information, presented in modules, which you can jump between and quickly scan for the items you need later on, should you ever start to observe the stars Moon and planets with binoculars or a small telescope.
So if you are new to the subject, or just a little unsure about terminology, or how it all 'works', then this course is absolutely for you.

When I first started out in astronomy I had to learn all these things the hard way! I've spent hundreds of hours using telescopes and digging through libraries and thousands of pounds in buying equipment to learn everything I am going to tell you so you don't have to take all that time and spend all that money!
I became a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society
some years ago having been nominated by no less than Sir Patrick himself, and I
am a member of the British Astronomical Association.
I have made appearances on the BBC Sky at Night Television Programme with Sir Patrick, and have even had my own television programme on the Sky Information Channel. I have regularly contributed to the BBC Sky at Night magazine and now write regularly for Astronomy Now and other periodicals on the subject. I've even written a novel with an astronomical theme called 'In The Lion's Paw'
As time permits, I give lectures on various aspects of astronomy and equipment to astronomers, both beginners and more advanced, far and wide, and have made appearances on BBC local radio and commercial stations and lecture to the public at 2 different Planetariums.
Finding that I kept being asked the same questions over and over again, I started to run a night class at my local Planetarium.
I realise you can't necessarily get to where I am in the world, so I decided to make these courses more widely available on the internet - and to stop my wife complaining about being an astronomy widow!'Discover the Night Sky' is a distillation of part of a course which I ran at my two local planetaria. Many people who came on the course kindly gave me some feedback to let me know what they thought, so, please...
RA and DEC explained at last!Astronomy is a fascinating and complex subject. My wife and I decided to do the course before spending our hard earned cash on equipment.
We learnt what we needed to know thank's to Ninan's 40 year's of experience, and excellent presentation.
We even understand RA and DEC now thanks to the fantastic animation!
We can thoroughly recommend the e-course
to all novice astronomers.
A very informative and most enjoyable course. A must for anyone interested in astronomy.

Thank You Very Much!
Very interesting and informative, especially in the area of mapping the sky and measuring the universe,
which I had
I have found this course inspirational. Hopefully it will be
"I don't understand how the phases of the Moon work, we were never shown at school".
To be honest I was horrified. The person concerned was quite adult and very intelligent.So, using a simple model of the Earth and Moon and a torch which took the part of the Sun, I proceeded to explain exactly how and why we see the Moon at different times and in different parts of the sky. I received a heart-felt 'thank you' and a nod of understanding. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't bothered by the person's lack of knowledge, after all that was what I was there for, but I was concerned that 'school' had been so lax in not explaining one of these everyday scenes of nature. What else had they left out?
I want to help to get you 'up to speed' and inspire you with the shear wonder of the heavens! I'd like to show you how and why we only rarely see Solar Eclipses and
This comprehensive course clearly explains all you need to know to get you
started on your journey of discovery of the exciting hobby of astronomy.
Just imagine what you might do armed with the knowledge locked inside
Discover the Night Sky
So if you've always wanted to learn about or learn more about the wonder of the night sky, all you need to do is get 'Discover the Night Sky' and get going.
The pictures will take your breath away. The animations are clear and concise and the videos are short and friendly.
Studying this course will take you to the next level with you interest and will have you feeling confident and competant
with terminology and many of the concepts of astronomy.
So, why didn't I just write a book? Because with the online e-course I could pack in loads of these pictures and animations and video to help clearly explain some of the concepts that are just plain difficult to do in print.
Here's the best news of all: you can take advantage of an extraordinary offer.
This course was many months in the making. Because I love astronomy so much, it really wasn't a hardship, but it was a huge time commitment.
I spoke to lots of beginners to find out what they needed to know and asked questions of friends online to discover what you were finding difficult.
I went back to my books and trawled the internet into the small hours, and drew heavily on all my years of experience to gather together all the information you need into one place to provide you with a wealth of information.
I simply wanted to give you the very best start in this amazing subject so...
Then, I fired up my computer and began to write and produce the videos, animations, diagrams and pictures that make up the course as I want it to be a truly valuable guide for YOU, the budding astronomer and frankly I'm proud of the result!
And now you can have all this at a great price....
So, you now see why my family thinks I should be selling this resource for a very high price. They know how much time, thought and effort went into it. And they know that people pay me over £130 to teach all this at my nightclass.
However I persuaded them that because I don't have
to physically send you anything, I could let you have it at a much reduced price and we agreed on £97...
...but I get so excited, I can't wait to get you started in this wonderful and awe inspiring hobby, and I wanted to get the course out there even quicker so they agreed I could drop the price even further although I may cave into pressure and put it up again...
...so you can download this amazing information packed course fro a while longer, not for the £97 price tag, but for a mere £67.
I am so confident that you will find
this online course useful and that it will teach you so much to ensure you have
many productive hours of observing that I am prepared to offer you a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE for 6 whole months!
Remember you still keep the bonus and the information packed course notes even if you claim your refund!
Claim your copy of Discover the Night Sky Online Course now along with your course notes and FREE bonus worth £97 for the special price of only £67.00.
I've decided to keep this offer running for a little longer,but please grab it while you can at this price because it is likely to go back to £97 very soon and you will have missed the opportunity for ever!
My friends and family will probably be happier knowing that I have retained my sanity but your opportunity to get this valuable information at this fantastic price will have passed.
