Description:

This is a booklet about spectra and their usefulness to astronomers. Learners will read about the electromagnetic spectrum, how atomic physics is used to obtain information out of stellar spectra, and how the Doppler effect is used to measure stellar motions. An activity at the end allows learners to analyze and identify several emission lines in the spectrum of the Sun.
