    Astronomer is someone who studies astronomy.

    Astronomy is:
    the scientific study of the universe and of objects which exist naturally in space, such as the moon, the sun, planets and stars.

    I need it for kids story. It should look like magic man. Astrologer and astronomer are scientific and look adult.

    Starcounter is probably the best.
    Stargazeyman looks like plumber came to your house to fix water filter.

    Thank you for your help.
