This course is interesting. The professor is very enthusiastic about his field. IMHOit isn't for beginners in astronomy....way too much math. The course is 6 weeks and with the material covered it should be 10 to 12 weeks. I lasted 3 weeks and gave it up when I saw the 3rd week quiz/homework. I couldn't answer a single question without hours of research...at age 74, life is too short to be stressed out.
