Skyentist : noun : [skahy-uhn-tist]
Definition: An alternate name for an astronomer; a scientist that studies the skies.
I seriously don't understand why this one isn't a real word. If someone wanted or needed to hire more astronomers, all they'd need to do is change the position name to skyentist and people would flock to work there. Honestly, I'd even consider it, and I hate the idea of being an astronomer. Or perhaps we'll just reserve that name for the brand of scientist that will study the skies on other planets one day. It would be a way better option than calling them "extra-terrestrial meteorologists". Gross.
