Stars are self-luminous gaseous spheroidal celestial bodies of great mass which produce energy by means of nuclear fusion. Listed sites may include sky maps and constellations, types of stars including giants and dwarfs, and related subjects such as pulsars and quasars.
The primary purpose of this website is to distribute information related to the positions and motions of the stars and planets, mainly to the Defense community.
Entire Astrophysics course online. Very extensive introduction course to stars.
Find data (cross references, positions, proper motions, spectral classes, magnitudes ...) on all stars visible to the naked eye from the BSC, SKY2000, SAO, WDS and GCVS. Stars can be searched by their proper names, Bayer designations, Flamsteed, HR, HD, SAO or FK5 numbers.
One huge page packed with illustrations, diagrams and photographs portraying some interesting aspects of stars, black holes and galaxies.
A listing of the Hawaiian Astronomical Society Deepsky Atlas by constellation.
Illustrated tutorial about stars, their properties, formation, and death. Includes related links.
Plasma recombination lasers in rapidly cooled stellar atmospheres.
Discussion will focus on the nonlinear interactions between turbulent convection, rotation and magnetic fields in the interiors of stars. From 6 September - 17 December, 2004 at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK. Includes list of workshops and list of participants.
Article providing information on how to derive properties of stars, based on observation.
Sightings of extrasolar planets are increasing.
A small Hubble telescope image gallery of Quasars.
A brief overview of what stellar spectra are and how they are used to classify stars.
Provides detailed information about stars: positions, proper motion, radial velocity, magnitudes, spectral class, color index, catalogue references, data about multiple star systems (i.e. orbital elements), and data about variability (min./max. brightness, period, type of variability).
