Astronomy is the study of the Universe and objects in space. It deals with the nature and behavior of stars, planets, moons, nebulae, galaxies and more. It is among the oldest of sciences with prehistoric origins. Today it is the source of exciting discoveries ranging from other earth-like planets to massive black holes found on the visible edge of space and time.

Bellevue College’s Astronomy department invites you to experience the wonders of our solar system in our planetarium classroom, which is used on a daily basis. In our planetarium we are able to recreate the clear night sky, which enables students to explore the stars, constellations, planets and even galaxies during class.

Astronomy is one of five sciences that comprise our Earth and Space Sciences Program (the others are Meteorology, Geology, Oceanography, and Environmental Science).
