Astronomy Videos
Welcome to the Astronomy Videos Page. 
Research has shown that many people tend to learn and grasp information a bit better from a video as compared to just reading text. With that in mind I selected these particular Videos because I feel the content is well explained and presented in ways that will not only help you understand but also help you to remember.

*** On slower computers, allowing the video to load up several seconds before playing will help *** prevent video stutter. To do this just simply start and play video then click the pause button. Wait 15 to 30 seconds then press play again. The video should play stutter free for the entirety.
