    I'll list the top astronomy schools at the end, but keep in mind that these are the top astronomy graduate schools. If you want to be an astronomer, you really need a PhD - there aren't many/any jobs out there if you don't have one. And there's really not a lot of overlap between aerospace engineering and astronomy. If you want to go the astronomy route, you'll want to major in physics as an undergrad, while double majoring / minoring in math and astronomy. But if you attend one of the schools below, that will help your chances of getting into one of the others for grad school.

    Top astronomy grad schools:

    Harvard, Berkeley, CalTech, Princeton, UCLA, UC Santa Cruz, University of Hawaii, UT Austin, U Washington (Seattle), Columbia, Cornell, MIT, UMass Amherst, U Chicago, U Toronto, Ohio State, Michigan, U Virginia, Clemson.
