sorry, couldn't resist.

The first year astronomy that I took was mostly about the formation of planets and the geography of various planets (though the entire first term was spent on the moon and mars).

Yarely if you enjoy learning about black holes, supernovae, stars and planets, then you'll love astronomy. You don't need a strong physics background to enjoy the concepts presented. I would suggest starting with Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time to get your feet wet. You can look at various pictures and random facts about the universe, but a book like this will help organize the philosophy behind astronomy without leading you to too many crazy misinformed ideas. For instance, an astronomy book can tell you how strong the gravity is from a black hole, but without some perspective on what they're saying, it doesn't make as much sense.

Wow thanks a lot! I'll go check out that book!
Right now I'm reading "Deep Sky Objects." by David H. Levy, which isn't really a starting book for astronomy because it's kind of more like a personal account into an astronomer's joy for stars and comets.
It's a really nice book but some of the things he says are confusing because I don't really know all that much about astronomy
But I'll go check out that Stephen Hawking book
