Description:

Spectra is a very informative website about how astronomers use spectra to understand what stars are made of, their structures, and their evolution. The page begins with an introduction to the electromagnetic spectrum and then goes into great detail about the properties of light. Then it talks about how matter both creates and destroys radiation. Then it discusses how to interpret absorption and emission lines. The website ends with how astronomers use spectra to understand stars, galaxies, other objects in the universe.
