PBS: Crash Course Astronomy Videos

January 19, 2017

PBS: Crash Course Astronomy Videos
http://www.pbs.org/show/crash-course-astronomy/episodes

Crash Course Astronomy is a 46-episode PBS series that educates the public about all things astronomy. Each episode is approximately ten minutes in length and covers topics ranging from Moon Phases to Black Holes to Gamma Ray Bursts. Written and hosted by astronomer and blogger Phil Plait, Crash Course Astronomy features clear, accessible explanations of astronomical phenomena accompanied by engaging (and helpful) images, videos, and animations. Episodes can be enjoyed individually – although many reference previous episodes, which may inspire viewers to explore the series chronologically. Crash Course Astronomy is a great resource to include in any science classroom, and may broadly appeal to anyone looking to make sense of astronomy.

Google Moon

December 17, 2016

Google Moon
https://www.google.com/moon

By now, most of us are familiar with Google Earth, but what about Google Moon? This lunar version of the geobrowser allows visitors to virtually explore all six missions of the Apollo Program carried out between 1962 and 1972. Visitors can examine a variety of spectacular photographs from each mission via map pins, which arrange photographs by geographic location on the moon. Alternatively, visitors can browse thumbnail images from each mission. Each photograph is accompanied by a short description that provides context as well as links to related resources and video clips. For example, by selecting one of these links, visitors will find the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, a record of lunar surface operations that includes parts of the original radio transcript from all six journeys. An extensively developed pan and zoom capability really brings the experience to life. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

The New World Atlas of Artificial Sky Brightness

July 22, 2016

The New World Atlas of Artificial Sky Brightness
http://cires.colorado.edu/artificial-sky

Light pollution in urban centers creates a sky glow that can blot out the stars. The brighter the area in this zoomable map, the harder it is to see stars and constellations in the night sky. In the United States, national parks are often a refuge for darkness; national parks are shown in purple in the map below. Check out the globe version of the atlas, too (not compatible with Chrome). This map is based on data published June 10 by a team of researchers led by Fabio Falchi and including NOAA’s Chris Elvidge and CIRES’ Kimberly Baugh.

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures

June 24, 2016

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures
https://www.astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures

In 1999, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the SETI Institute, NASA’s Ames Research Center, and the Foothill College Astronomy Program teamed up to create the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures. Each lecture, presented at Foothill College in the Silicon Valley, is approximately 90 minutes in length and features various noted astronomers as they make astronomical phenomena accessible to the general public. For example, in November 2015, Harvard University’s Richard Kirshner explained the recent astronomical discovery of cosmic acceleration – growing evidence that the universe is expanding at an increasingly rapid speed. With this resource, users may opt to either download these lectures as podcasts or listen to them online. Alternatively, the lectures in this series are also available on the SVAstronomyLectures YouTube channel and include slides that provide helpful visuals. That said, these lectures do not center on visuals, and thus can be understood just as enjoyably in podcast form. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.
