Astronomy Quote of the Day

“The strongest affection and utmost zeal should, I think, promote the studies concerned with the most beautiful objects. This is the discipline that deals with the Universe's divine revolutions, the stars' motions, sizes, distances, risings and settings... for what is more beautiful than heaven?” Nicolaus Copernicus
