In this paper I am going to present you two innovative approaches for learning Astronomy through gaming. On one hand we used the subject of Astronomy as a vehicle since Astronomy provides a unique environment for educators from Kindergarten to Lyceum, and because its multidisciplinary character is ideal for an introduction to science education. On the other hand Gaming to learn has been around for a decade, but it is only recently that these possibilities in the realm of education truly have been appreciated. If indeed humans think immeasurably better as part of a network than on their own, then games are an obvious terrain in which to set minds free and let them wander around. Thus it;s really worthy to test and try this new medium of learning to a fachinating science.
