Welcome to the
astronomy WikiProject! If you enjoy gazing at the night sky, watching the Moon, stars and planets, or reading about the latest astronomical discoveries, then this is the project for you. We need help from enthusiasts at all levels of experience. There are over 30,000 astronomy articles on Wikipedia, and many are in need of expansion, fact checking, referencing, and copy editing. If this topic interests you, please sign the membership list and join the discussion.
Our goal at WikiProject Astronomy is to guide the organization and style of all
Astronomy-related articles, maintain and improve the Category:Astronomy tree, and support the Portal:Astronomy. The overall significance of an article to this project, and to the topic of astronomy in general, is shown by its WPAstronomy importance rating, as set by our members. Astronomy articles considered of vital importance to Wikipedia are listed on the expanded vital articles list.
Sub-projects of WikiProject Astronomy include
WikiProject Astronomical objects, The Constellations Task Force and the Astronomy Image Review. Related WikiProjects include WikiProject Solar System, WikiProject Mars, WikiProject Moon and WikiProject Spaceflight.
The following astronomy article-related alerts are automatically generated about once per day by the
