If you mean 天体観測 then my electronic dictionary translates it as "astronomical/celestial observation". In simpler terms, I think you can translate it as "Looking at the starry sky" (simplified translation).

Requesting help with a translation and 2 questions.
http://kazasou.files.wordpress.com/2...d-tbd-3019.jpg
Now I know the writing translates to Mahou Shoujo Tai (magical girl squad) atleast I think it does but my question is does it also say more like the main char's name? cause when I look on the net it lists anime as called mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu/Alice/Arisu
Which leads me to my second question which is her proper name Arusu/Alice/Arisu?
Thanks

Yeah I seen that but sadly they also use 2 or 3 versions of the name, calling her Arusu in the bio but Alice when talking about her friends.

What does the loanword "scenario" mean in Japanese context? I'm pretty sure its meaning has been skewed a bit from what I know. It comes from a sentence, "Contest entries may be in any format: novel, manga, or scenario." How is scenario diff from novel?

So a scenario is just a script? Why call it a scenario, lulz.

昨夜の彼の行動が怪しかったので、軽く調べたのが、恐らくまだのようだ。

I can understand most of the sentence, except I am not sure what the word "まだ" in "恐らくまだのようだ" is suppose to mean. I suspect it is a typical instance in spoken Japanese where quite some info are omitted and you are suppose to guess what it means, but I can't.

ここで張っておけば必ず接触してくる。

Here I am just having trouble to understand the phrase "張っておけば", for some reason I can't find anything in the dictionary.

まだ means "still" or "yet". And in this sentence verb is omitted. Add "do する" and this sentence become:
恐らくまだのようだ → 恐らくまだしていないようだ(Probably he doesn't seems to have done yet.)
To determine what he aimed to do, need more context info.

張る is originally 網を張る, means stretching a net.
It is word for fishing. A fisher stretches a net in the river or sea, and catch fishes.
When policemen use this expressions, it means that to guess the area a criminal hides or route he'll go through and to construct policemen's network there.
In this sentence, 張る means policemen's expression.

Thank you. It makes much more sense now. I do wonder how people guess such things. Anyway, I need to get a lot more familiar with the language. Appreciate it, buddy.

For a short definiton,
踊り食い(おどりぐい)は、魚介類を活きたまま食べること。

Basically, it means eating seafood such as fishes or shrimps while they are alive and jumping. Scary.
