I've never seen that one before. I wonder if it's new. Looks interesting.

I was just browsing through rainbow and found it. It looks pretty good.

Here is Cathy Duffy's review and think it will be very helpful:
https://cathyduffyreviews.com/homeschool-reviews-core-curricula/science/topical-areas/earth-and-space-science/the-crossroads-of-science-and-faith-astronomy-through-a-christian-worldview

She reports:
"Regarding the age of the earth, they assume that this is a secondary faith issue rather than a primary element of one’s theology, a position with which many young-earth Christians might disagree. The text supports an old age for the universe based on scientific evidence. While the course briefly presents various viewpoints in this regard, it is designed to bring students to agreement with an age of billions of year. A series of questions within the chapter four exercises attempts to sway students to in that direction. Other comments elsewhere do so as well."


This would be important to know and make sure you are o.k. with this. Personally, that would be a big turn off of it.

Here is another high school astronomy program to consider: https://experienceastronomy.com/course/
Not cheap but looks comprehensive.

Hopefulmama,
Thanks so much! I can now scratch that one off my list.

There's also Survey of Astronomy from Master Books, and Signs & Seasons.
