I'm really interested in astronomy since I began watching the night sky with my binoculars and found the view above me so beautiful. For some reason, I didn't notice that we had such a thing above us, being part of our daily life and considering it as something that has to be without questioning myself, too immersed with human things (school, etc.). Anyway, I wanted to know what would be a good way to begin learning about astronomy ? What would be some good books that I could learn from ? (I don't have the educational background as professional astronomers do, for now.)

Thank you for your suggestions!

This question came from our site for astronomers and astrophysicists.

You could find your local astronomy club and see if they have "Star Parties" where members bring their telescopes to some dark field once a month or so and show off the universe to anyone who shows up. Everything you see will be something real and meaningful to you in a different way.

Be warned, though, that you might get hooked, and end up owning a couple of thousand dollars worth of really cool equipment.
