Approved Websites - Stellar

Page history last edited by Erika Grundstrom 1 year, 11 months ago

Here are the websites and on-line simulations you may use in order to carry out your research for the final poster session.  Should you wish to branch out from the approved websites, please contact Dr. G to get approval. It could be really fun to do some data-mining on some other astronomical data so please be creative but don't get in over your head ;)

You should use one of these websites/programs and be able to answer your question with NO OTHER outside sources.  You can make some conjectures using your data AND outside sources, but your evidence-based conclusion must be derived only from that data source.

Stars and Star Clusters:



Solar System / Sun:



  • Zooniverse: Milky Way Project - citizen science project to find bubbles, star clusters, EGOs, pillars, etc. to help understand how stars (and planets) form http://www.milkywayproject.org/ 
  • Galactic Planetary Nebula Catalog (PLNEBULAE) - query, download, and examine properties of planetary nebulae found in the Milky Way: https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/W3Browse/nebula-catalog/plnebulae.htm 
  • HASH Planetary Nebula Database - well-vetted set of planetary nebulae in the Milky Way, no distances (has angular sizes): http://hashpn.space/  
  • Google ImageSearch of "planetary nebula" or "supernova remnant" or "star-forming region" for comparison purposes (may wish to okay with Dr. G)
  • The Hubble Space Telescope Image Galleryhttp://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/ (chose from the different categories - note that the photographic sample here is a bit biased toward the prettiest things...)
