Intro to Astronomy Lab

Spring 2016 Online


This class will enhance your journey in Astronomy by exploring the means and methods used by astronomers in their research. Each lab has specific objectives designed to make understandable key astronomical concepts using simulations, analogies, and comparisons with daily experiences. Additional readings with one-page reviews will also enrich your understanding.

I look forward to working with you this semester. The labs may seem challenging at first glance. But once you get started, clarify your objectives, and follow specific procedures, you will find out they are not only “doable” but fun as well. “Clear skies” (astronomer’s expression) to all students for success in Astronomy Lab!
