As long as man has lived on this Earth we have looked up and asked big questions.
The word Astronomy comes from the Greek αστρονομία, which is a combination of the two words άστρον and νόμος. Using characters familiar to English readers, astronomia = astron + nomos. Astronomy literally means "law of the stars".
