Ask an Astronomer
There are several places on the web where you can ask questions about Astronomy or Space Science, which will be dealt with by professional astronomers. However many of these services have been discontinued over time because of the workload this creates for busy professionals.
For definition of astronomical terminology you can look in any of the Glossaries that we have listed here.
