Hi there! Long time lurker first time poster. I have to choose a major this year and I was looking at Astrophysics (yes, it is a major at my university) however I was reading the university handbook and in 3rd year (I'm entering my second year now) I have to choose between theoretical and observational astrophysics. So I was just wondering what are the Pros and Cons of each area and is there really much distinction between the two? I'm sorry if this belongs in the academic guidance forum but I think comparing two fields is more of a careers type thing. Thank you.
