Astronomy Articles

The cosmos is full of surprises, here are a few of them.

There is much we don’t yet understand about our universe. Astronomy gives us a deeper understanding of the cosmos, and with each new discovery, the boundaries of knowledge expand even further.

Stargazing Guides

The night sky is a wondrous spectacle of stars, galaxies and planets.

Stargazing allows us to appreciate the beauty of our universe from our own backyards. Through the naked eye, binoculars, or telescopes, we can observe constellations, stars, planets, galaxies and even comets.

Telescope 101

Telescopes come in many shapes and sizes, and there is one for every budget.

Telescopes provide us with a unique window into the wonders of our universe, allowing us to get our eyes on distant galaxies and star clusters, marvel at spectacular nebulae and even explore the planets in our own solar system.

Tom Urbain

Hey, fellow space lovers! My name is Tom Urbain and I am the man behind starlust.org. I created this website to share my knowledge and passion for all things space related.

I have been in love with space since I was a young boy, and over the years, that passion only grew stronger. In my opinion, the night sky should be the eighth wonder of the world. There is just something so magical and humbling about looking up at the stars.
