Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky and Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at shopatsky@aas.org. Click here for information on delays in international deliveries.

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. As you may know, Ohio has closed all non-essential businesses. Aero also provides fulfillment services for P&G and has received an exception from the shut-down. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

Lab Exercises in Astronomy: How Far is the Galactic Center

By The Editors of Sky & Telescope

Format: Supplies

SKU# LE017

This astronomy lab exercise teaches students to reason their way to an answer for a deceptively simple question: how far away is our galaxy's center? Students will measure color-magnitude diagrams of globular star clusters to determine their distances, taking the reddening effects of dust into account. They will then plot the distribution of these clusters and determine the center of this distribution.
