Star of wonder, star of light

My only goal in taking Astronomy, aside from fulfilling my last Gen-Ed science requirement so I can graduate in May, was to be able to gaze up into the sky with greater wonder, amazement, and knowledge. This evening as I was walking home from the chapel I was able to identify Polaris, Casseiopea, Orion, Sirius, and the Pleiades; if I don't learn anything more this semester, the class will have been worth it for that.
