ASTR 384 - Modern Observational Astronomy

(2)
FA, alternate years. Students will learn techniques of modern observational astronomy by doing observing projects in each of three wavelength regimes: optical, radio, and one other (e.g., x-ray). Optical observations will use CCD detectors to do multi-color photography, photometry, astrometry, and spectroscopy. Radio observations made with the Very Large Array will be used for interferometric imaging. NASA archival data will be used for other wavelengths. Laboratory (lab fee: $25). Prerequisite: Concurrent registration in or completion of ASTR 211 or ASTR 212. Lab fee: $25.
