These resources will be preserved on our website for the foreseeable future. Short wavelength (high frequency) photons carry more energy than long wavelength (low frequency) photons. Conversely, stars with luminosities much less than those of main-sequence stars of the same temperature must be smaller and are termed white dwarf star s. The stars and constellations visible in the fall have their own stories to tell. You’d have to be close to a planet, a few hundred thousand kilometers at most, to get the view in the movie.

Understanding the cold, dusty material that we see in these images, helps scientists to learn how stars form and how our galaxy changes and evolves with time. ORION and his two dogs, CANIS MAJOR and CANIS MINOR, are featured in this month's lesson. New Horizons made a close flyby of Pluto but Chandra is located near the Earth, so the level of detail visible in the two images is very different. This is the amazing massive pier to isolate the new 1 meter telescope from the building being constructed around it.
