Welcome to Honors Astronomy.  I'm Mr. Hellmund and  I am thrilled to be teaching this course.   FHS offers one of  the longest running high school astronomy program in the state; in addition there are only a hand full of schools that teach astronomy on a high school level in the US.

By the end of the year I hope that the students who leave this class will have a greater understanding of “where” and “at what time” we are existing at and in. Most of all, I hope they come away with a greater wonderment of the universe that surrounds us.

 I am planning to set up evening “star parties” – events where we will have several telescopes set up for skywatching - usually this will be on Patriot Field.   Parents and members of the community are always welcome.
