The neutrino astronomy is a discipline born in the interfaces among particle physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics. In this lecture, a broad overview of its scope and its motivations is offered. Various objects are considered and discussed, emphasizing the core-collapse supernovas as interesting targets for the neutrino astronomy at low energy, and the galactic and extragalactic sources of cosmic rays for the neutrino astronomy at high energy.
