Astronomical Dictionary


On a Swedish forum it was asked if it couldn't be a dictionary about astronomy somewhere. Here I have started a new page that link astronomy words to Wikipedia. If you want answer in other language than English you can choose it from Wikipedia. But from English you normally get the best answers.

This page will just hold the most common words and aims to the beginners in astronomy.

I have got a lot of positive comments about this new page. I have after that added a lot of new astronomy related words and I found it very interesting to read it myself.
