Hello and welcome to Astronomy, this term we will be taking a step back from focusing on specific aspects of the night sky. It is a pleasure to have you all here and I can't wait to see what crafty magic the Heavens inspire in you.
Completed Coursework: I was lucky enough to procure an old Muggle astronomy book and this is where our assignment for the semester comes from. What we study in Astronomy consists of things that we know. The truth my dear students, is that there is still so much we DON'T know about the night sky. We know more now than we ever have before but there is still so much to learn. This term you must tackle something unknown. Whether this means learning a new craft technique or researching some aspect of the night sky you don't know and making something inspired by it or tackle the unknown in some other way I leave up to you. Just make sure that you explain how you tackled the unknown when you turn in your assignment.
Advanced Studies *Note that only advanced study projects completed during the current term will be displayed under the completed OWL and NEWT headers*
Proposed OWLs: Option 1-Craft a star chart. Option 2-Interpret the solar system into a craft. Option 3-It is believed that we can only see 5% of the universe, the rest is made up of Dark Matter and Dark Energy which is invisible to us. Create something where at first glance you can only see a small portion, but when you look closer you can find the rest of the details.
