    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class is really interesting. My favorite part of the class was being able to go outside and view the stars. I did not know many constellations prior to this class, but I have learned to identify quite a few. The only issue with the class is that the professor is quite disorganized.

    Course highlights:

    We discussed a few myths about why we have telescopes in the higher atmosphere (it is not to be closer to the stars, but to eliminate light pollution and some of the atmosphere, so the stars twinkle less). One highlight of this class is to learn to identify some common constellations which you can use to impress your friends and family.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class is very easy to get a good grade in plus you learn something that is interesting. Also, there is only one small section in the class that has some easy math. The class is very straight-forwards.
