    Education of an Astronomer
    Information found on The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    Most jobs in astronomy require a PhD in physics and astronomy. Others require both a PhD and a Doctor's degree. These two college educations will come in handy while finding a job in this field. Degree's like Master's or Bachelor's might come in handy for teaching jobs, but not higher level ones. To get these educations, many astronomers go to college's in Arizona, California, and Massachusetts.

    Employment Opportunities and Job Outlook for Astronomers
    Information taken from The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    In the year 2008, astronomers held only about 1,500 jobs. This is a very small amount of people working in the field. Most of these astronomers were employed through the Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). They were employed to study the sky and space, no other special jobs. Even though astronomers work all over the country, many also work in universities or observatories.
    While working, astronomers may experience fast job growth. This is because the job of an astronomer depends on budgets. In the last 3 years, job growth has been going up 16%.

    Astronomers must use physics and mathematics to learn the fundamentals of the universe. The main problem for astronomers is to study objects around us. We firstly have to know about the moon and the planets before we learn about deep space.Though most astronomers just work on inspection and testing instead of observing.
    The working environment for astronomers does not include many hazards. Most astronomers work in unique places such as particle accelerators and ground based telescopes. Though, the field does require long and odd working hours. Since astronomers must study objects in the night sky, they have to work during dark hours.
