Proposal: Astronomy

From time to time when I say that I work in astronomy, I get questions about alien life (mostly) and more rarely about effect of planets and stars on our life. I wouldn't be surprise to have a reasonable number of questions about these and possibly other similar topics.

How would we treat such questions?

  • How about extraterrestrial life in general?

Just close them as Off Topic or downvote them, just like on any other site.

  • Agree. It might be worth to make people aware, through faq or similar, that those kind of question will likely be downvoted or closed Commented Feb 27, 2013 at 20:01

    Perhaps even migrate them. Alien discussions to Paranormal (if it gets up and running) and Astrology to ...well, I don't know where.
