The Worthless Word for the Day:
uranology [fr. Gk ouranos: sky, heaven(s) + -logy] /yur uh NAL uh jee/ (also ouranology)

  1. the study of the heavens: astronomy
  2. a discourse or treatise on the heavens

Hence, uranologist & uranological.

"Uranology is a science which treats of the natural body of heaven..." - E. Sibly, The Celestial Science of Astrology (1792)

"..we may regard ouranology as discipline that binds together the various specializations necessary to the creation of a space microcosm." - Anthony Burgess, The End of the World News (1983)
