The branch of science that deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole.


Welcome to the astronomy department AT LMC


Scott Cabral

Astronomy, derived from the Greek words for star law and is one of the oldest sciences. It studies the celestial bodies: planets, moons, meteorites and stars; it explores galaxies and investigates cosmic radiation, and it tries to shed light on the origins and evolution of the universe.


Los Medanos College has a planetarium (open in fall 2014) and a telescope viewing area on top of it's science building for night viewing.
