    Sommaire:

    In this course, University of Illinois Professor Emeritus James B. Kaler guides listeners through the sights of the naked- eye sky, wherein we directly witness the effects of the turning and revolving of the Earth, the artistry painted by the human mind using the sky and stars, and how the view changes with time and with our place on the planet.
