Astronomy

A stargazer cleric

Astronomy is the study of the heavens and the celestial bodies therein. It is one of the oldest sciences on Golarion with evidence of interest in astronomy being found from earlier civilizations. Astronomers study the Solar system and its contents: the Sun, the planets and their moons, the Diaspora and comets. Beyond the solar system in which Golarion orbits, astronomers also study the stars within their constellations, the Dark Tapestry between the stars, and all other elements within the firmament of the Material Plane. Astronomy is taught at a number of establishments on Golarion. Additionally, there are many observatories used for astronomy in Golarion. Astronomy is also important within many faiths but Desna has many astronomers who worship her.[1] The only known species that is composed almost entirely of astronomers are the enigmatic lunar nagas, who spend their entire lives cataloging the heavens.[2]
