We learn the basics of astronomy by exploring our own solar system and nearest neighbouring stars and planets. We look at the theories of how stars and planets form and how these theories change as astronomers discover planets around stars other than our Sun. We also examine some of the basic techniques used to find new planets, our closest neighbours in our universe.
