Astronomy Tools - Spectroscopy: Spectroscopy is second to photography with regards to importance. It was the photography of spectra that birthed Astrophysics. The term spectra is defined as the entire electro-magnetic wavelength. Spectroscopy began in 1666 when Sir Isaac Newton discovered that white light passing through a glass prism split the light into a rainbow.
Astronomy 195: Observational Astronomy Fall: 3 Credits Limited to 28 Students This course provides a “hands-on” introduction to observational astronomy intended for liberal arts students at the freshman or sophomore level. High school mathematics is assumed, but there are no formal prerequisites.
Spectroscope: Student Worksheet Introduction Just as a geologist collects rocks or minerals and a botanist collects plants, an astronomer collects light. Astronomers usually can not touch the objects they study, like stars or galaxies. But they can analyze the light these celestial objects radiate using a spectroscope. When an.
Introduction to Astronomical Spectroscopy Spectroscopy is the principal tool used in astronomy to investigate the Universe beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Through the analysis of electromagnetic radiation, spectrographs enable observers to assess the chemical composition, kinematics, and local physical properties of distant stars, nebulae, and.
