This course guides listeners through the sights of the naked- eye sky, wherein we directly witness the effects of the turning and revolving of the Earth, the artistry painted by the human mind using the sky and stars, and how the view changes with time and with our place on the planet.

I listened to Professor Kaler's other two excellent lectures which, were more science based than this one (which by its nature is more historical and visual). While I finished the lectures I did run through quickly some of his survey of the sky as it was difficult to follow and a little boring---this type of description is difficult to make interesting without visuals. While the lecture was OK, not nearly as good as the previous two, both of which I highly recommend.
Very informative. I have listened through once and now listening again while taking notes. This is an excellent source for learning about stars, constellations, and much more. I recommend this to any person interested in Astronomy.
