|Abstract:||Serendipity plays a significant role in astronomical discovery. Astronomers generally cannot experiment with their objects and must rely on interpreting the objects and phenomena as they find them. A wide range of examples from volcanoes to planets to neutron stars to black holes will be used to illustrate how an observationally-driven subject like astronomy works. Finally, how a 'look before you think' approach fits in with ever more expensive telescopes will be considered.|
