General Information

I use a lot of demos in my lectures from the Nebraska Astronomy Applet Project. If you would like to play around with these demos, you will need a computer with Macromedia Flash installed. In the menu bar, click on NAAP Labs and you should see a list of the different demos arranged by subject. In each subject, the actual demo has the label "[swf]" following the link. Enjoy!

Want to make your own star wheel? Got a printer? Check this out. It's not as good as the card stock or plastic ones, but it is free.

Check out Google Sky, a part of Google Earth.
