Proposal: Astronomy.

Cosmology and Astronomy are closely related and a few of the example questions look more like Cosmoloy to me:
What does the future of the universe look like?
Does the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR) prove the Big Bang?

Would Cosmology (studying the universe as a whole) questions be on or off-topic on the new Astronomy (concerned with individual celestial objects) site?

My preference would be on-topic, just wondering what other think?

I would say that it would be on-topic as well. Cosmology, in a way, is looking at the universal-big-picture. it certainly could be a tag that could be used.

As for making a new Cosmology proposal, I think the cross-over topics between that and astronomy would cause an endless migration of topics.

    Agreed, just wondering if the scope of the proposal already included/excluded Cosmology.
