Anthroposophically orientated astronomy seeks connections between cosmic and terrestrial phenomena. The Goethean research method plays an important role in understanding these cosmic-earthly correlations. That is why attention is focused on a phenomenological approach to cosmic manifestations such as planets, star constellations or comets – that is, learning to read them as the intrinsic expression of an entity. This anthroposophical method of research accentuates sensory observation and the forming of spiritual ideas, largely relinquishing model-based concepts that are alien to the nature of the phenomena.
