The following pages include not only astronomers, but also persons with relation to astronomy: Scholars from other fields who did investigations in astronomy, makers of astronomical instruments, etc. In some cases the only relation to astronomy is that a feature on the Moon or on other planets was named after that specific person. Astronauts are included only when there was some relation of their work to astronomy.
A document containing information on astronomers and related scientists is hyperlinked here only in case it provides more or less extended biographical data or it is devoted exclusively to a single person. For a large number of short biographies see the hyperlinks in the document More biographies.
