Thanks to Keith Weissglass and Geddes Munson for assistance with the streaming version of the video.
Prof. Krisciunas has also written several other songs about astronomy. Here are lyrics to 1 song about the constellations, and 7 other songs about supernovas, quasars, etc.. My favorite line from the constellations song (set to Gilbert & Sullivan's "Major General" song): "The constellations in the sky were not put there to bore us / There's Antlia, Andromeda, Aquarius, and Taurus".
