Happy Easter, everyone! (Oh wait, that was yesterday. . .) Well, happy belated Easter! I hope you all had your fill of Peeps and chocolate bunnies. I know I did. (Just kidding. I hate peeps.) That brings us to the final week of the A to Z blog challenge! I hope you've all been learning and using big, new words on your friends. :)
U is for: Uranology
Go ahead. Get all of the Uranus jokes out of your system. I'll wait.

Okay. Uranology is basically another word for astronomy, or the study of the heavens. Even though it sounds like it is just the study of that one planet, Uranus, it's more like the study of all things other-worldly. So yes, a person who studies uranology would be a uranologist. (Not something you dreamed about being when you were a kid, huh . . .)
I'm gonna throw in a bonus snicker word: Uranomania. It's an astrology obsession. Try using that one in conversation without laughing!
