The sciences of astronomy seem to fascinate both young and old. Much of our lives are dominated by aspects of it we simply take for granted, but every now and then we question why or how astronomy affects our world. The Journeyman has created Everyday Astronomy to respond to questions concerning whatever you want to know about astronomy, in useful, simple and non-academic terms, with explanations developed over years of teaching. Ask the Journeyman a question and you will receive an answer you can understand.
Everyday Astronomy was created by the Journeyman, Charles Treleaven, a qualified Master Mariner who spent many years as a Deck Officer and Navigator aboard British, New Zealand, Fijian and Australian ships. These years were mainly before the invention of GPS systems, when the practice of navigation depended upon mathematics and a knowledge of the heavens.
In 1995 Charles introduced the portable planetarium STARLAB to Victoria, and over the next twenty-two years he supervised the teaching of basic astronomy to an estimated 800,000 Victorian students. He retired from that business in 2017 and has now started Everyday Astronomy so that his knowledge and experience remain available to all.
All subscribers to Everyday Astronomy are offered a comprehensive glossary explaining the language of astronomy and space, plus a glossary of meteorology (samples below), with a curriculum of subjects on popular topics. Journeyman's aim is simply to share knowledge, so subscribers are invited to ask any other questions they may have, e.g.:
