Today's Featured Project
Barnard33.jpg
In the observational astronomy project, astronomers can gain an understanding of objects in the universe by studying them with a telescope. Observational astronomy is the process of collecting and analyzing data to learn about these objects. In this learning project a computer program is used to view and study images taken with a telescope to learn basic concepts in astronomy. This is part of the astronomy project.
