How much do we really know about the Milky Way galaxy, sky astronomy or astrology? This quiz is a perfect opportunity to check that!
The beginning of the development of astrology is marked some thousands of years ago, when people noticed that in the sky, the stars or planets seemed to be moving against a background of clusters of other, smaller stars (constellations). After careful study they also observed that events on earth appeared to coincide with the locations of the planets in space.
Gradually, over many, many years, they began to correlate the different planets with several qualities and happenings in life, so they decided to give the planets various names, that probably everyone today knows. They also noticed that the effects of the planets appeared to also be influenced by the part of the sky that they were seen against. There appeared to be 12 major sectors of influence and they eventually gave names to each of these areas of the zodiac which resulted in today's popular science of horoscope. Today, there are many different types of horoscopes, and the one especially popular is Chinese zodiac.
The truth is that astrology along with horoscope predictions is simply a science of observation and no psychic powers are necessary to learn it. Intuition is helpful and some people will tend to rely on this gift but it is not vital to the astrologer, particularly whilst learning the skills.
Similarly, astronomy is a science close to common experience. Every curious person who gazes at the night sky becomes an astronomer, and yet the things we see in outer space are wholly outside our earthbound experience.
For three hundred years astronomers thought the universe consisted of only stars in our Milky Way, along with a handful of faint, fuzzy, and mysterious objects they called "nebulae." Most astronomers believed these objects were interspersed among the stars. Later, it was found that most of these objects were actually independent galaxies lying hundreds of millions of light-years from Earth. Early telescopes were unable to resolve the individual stars in these distant galaxies, so they appeared only as small nebulous smudges on the sky.
Astronomy is a young science, after all. Only in the last century or so have we truly come to understand the size and age of the universe we live in, neutron stars and other phenomena in astronomy. And finally, only in the last few years have we been able to find planets in orbit around other stars and the real possibility of life beyond Earth.
