Welcome, my name is Dolores Gende. This is the website
of the  Astronomy II course I taught at Parish Episcopal School in Dallas, TX during the 2007-2008 school year.

For thousands of years, people around the world have gazed up at the night sky and wondered at the celestial objects that occupy the space.

Astronomy is the oldest of all the sciences, yet it has
never been more exciting than it is today!
