Everyone who’s interested about astronomy and cosmology, and are eager to learn more, there’s a free online video course (50 hours or so) @ University of California, Berkeley, called: Introduction to General Astronomy (instructor Dr. Alex Filippenko).

Dr. Alex Filippenko is very famous astrophysicist and he has received numerous honors for his undergraduate teaching, including the Carl Sagan Prize for Science Popularization in 2004. In 2006 Filippenko was awarded the US Professor of the Year Award.

Filippenko was a member of the Supernova Cosmology Project and the High-z Supernova Search Team that used observations of extragalactic supernovae to discover the accelerating universe. This universal acceleration implies the existence of dark energy and was voted the top science breakthrough of 1998 by Science magazine.

I have watched this lecture series many, many times, and I must say that Alex is absolutely amazing lecturer. These lectures are highly educational, informative, entertaining, great fun and yet sometimes really touching. Best of all, these lectures are free for everyone to watch. Highly recommended!

I second Alex's class for someone who has not had any astrophysics instruction or just brushing up.  There is a bit more science in Charles Bailyn's course at Yale(also free and online.)

Other classes I have watched, learned and greatly enjoyed are Walter Lewin's course(classical mechanics) and David Jerison's course(18.01 single variable calculus.)  Both are on MIT opencourseware.
