Bad Astronomy

Here's a synopsis of the main Bad Pages.

  • Bad Movies: No one spreads Bad Astronomy more loudly or with more gusto than good old Hollywood. Here you'll find reviews of popular movies (and maybe some not so popular) and gauge their astronomy quality.

  • Bad TV: Television makes up in quantity where it trails movies in quality. From the Home Shopping Club shamelessly lying about telescopes they sell to the VH- program ``Pop-Up Video'', Bad Astronomy is all over the boob tube.

  • Bad News: Local news, national news, documentaries, radio, and newspapers have all contributed to the problem at some point or another.

  • Popular misconceptions: Why is the sky blue? Will a planetary alignment destroy the Earth? Find out here!
