So you want to be an Astronomer

Astronomers, are those who make observations, examine reams of data, and help inform scientific theories to enhance our understanding of the universe.

Astronomers may choose an area of specialisation, because space is so vast. Some astronomers may choose to focus on black holes, for example, while others may specifically study planets. Their work may often involve working at night – when conditions are better for observing space – and they can work with ground-based equipment (such as optical telescopes) and equipment in space (such as the Hubble space telescope).

Some astronomers use their expertise to develop new devices and practical applications, as well. Therefore, their employers can consist of colleges, universities and the federal government. In general, astronomers work in an office and/or observatories. They will have a solid background in maths or physics.
