Bad packaging

Here is some rather unfortunate packaging seen on a University of Oxford "Classic Telescope" in The Works bookshop in Hatfield. The telescope is part of the University of Oxford young scientist series and the box says "Have fun exploring the wonders of astrology". I can only hope that the packaging people meant to say "Have fun exploring the wonders of astronomy". This doesn't reflect* well on the University of Oxford.
