Astronomy is defined as the science that studies celestial bodies, their movements and related phenomena. The word comes from the Greek «άστρον» meaning astron and «νόμος» which translates as nomos and means “law of the stars”.

What we know today as Astronomy emerged almost at the same time as man. The first human beings were impressed with what the firmament showed them, and associated it with magic because they could not give any explanation. This gave rise to the impulse to search the sky for signs and symbols that would indicate what was happening on earth, an activity that lasted for several centuries.

After many years of observation, the scientific bases of astronomy were established with more precise statements and explanations about the universe.

Today, astronomy is characterized by the study of the stars of the cosmos and the laws that govern their motion. Astronomers are responsible for studying the structure and evolution of planets, stars, galaxies and other stellar elements.

Our list consists of more than 20 Astronomy books in PDF format, with complete and interesting information about this science.

The books are in the public domain or have been made available for free distribution.
