Operating as part of NASA's Radio Jove project the observatory receives radio noise bursts from the planet Jupiter and from the Sun. These signals are being made available in real-time over the Internet.
This Web site is intended to be a gateway for the public to the vast educational and informational resources of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that pertain to Solar System exploration.
This is perhaps the best way to access and browse NASA and some other space flight related topics. Well done, except for an idiotic insistence on a black background, it makes good use of HTML frames. Hence, you had better have Netscape 2, or the equivalent. The alternative is a lengthy display of options.
All images are displayed in anaglyph format, which means you need a pair of red-blue or red-green stereo glasses for viewing. Some images are displayed in parallel (side-by-side) format and you don't need any 3-D glasses to view them; your eyes simply fuse the stereo pairs into 3-D views.
This is the source of all those amazing images of the universe. Now that it is fixed, the space telescope has lived up to the hype surrounding it. The pictures take your breath away, and alter your consciousness. Not bad, for a Web page.
NASA's public relations page for the Galileo mission. It takes a little looking, but there is good stuff here for all, especially teachers. Just try to ignore the breathless "look how many people have called this page" messages.
Access to tens of thousands of NASA images, videos, and sounds; some superb, some make you wonder why they bothered. NASA has placed most of the pictures taken from most of the space missions online. Check out the Mir IMAX images in the Photo Gallery!
An educational site run by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the California Institute of Technology (CalTech). A well done site designed to introduce what infrared astronomy is, and provide news of recent scientific activity. Its own pages are short, and heavily illustrated.
The term "warehouse" says it all. Big, sprawling, a little confusing, but pretty. It features Bill Arnett's "The Nine Planets" (an excellent tour of the solar system) as well as deepsky pages, and pages devoted rocketry and petitions.
THE "DEEPSKY OBSERVER's COMPANION" (DOC) web-pages is an on-line resource for the deepsky observer, consisting primarily of visual descriptions of deepsky objects. Besides the work of contemporary amateur astronomers, descriptions of historical interest are also collected, including work by James Dunlop, John Herschel and E J Hartung.
The Internet Amateur Astronomers Catalog (IAAC or 'netastrocatalog' for short) is a forum for amateur astronomers at all levels to share their observations of Deep-Sky objects. (The 'deep-sky' includes all objects which are NOT members of our solar system: other galaxies, star clusters, gaseous nebulae, doubles, and variable stars are all deep-sky objects). Note that the netastrocatalog is a *catalog of amateur observations*, not a sales catalog of any kind!
A collection of photographs with simple accompanying text of various objects in the sky. The best part of the display is a constellation by constellation photographic atlas, each consisting of wide field photographs (with and without labels) and more detailed photographs.
The NGC/IC Project will eventually correctly identify all of the original NGC and IC objects. It will assemble basic data, collect images for each object. A corrected NGC/IC is a laudable long term goal, but the site's most useful function involves generating observing lists by constellation. The site is much faster with automatic loading of graphics turned off.
Doug Snyder's project of collecting interesting images of planetaries from all over the sky. Comes in a whiz-bang JAVA/MIDI version, and an HTML version that is more practical. This is a site with some depth.
Only in astronomy can something European be based in Chile. Perhaps the premier southern hemisphere observatory, it adds a mix of technical and general information and pictures to the Web from the perspective of south of the equator.
