SkyView Guide to Wavelengths
What's out there? Looking up in the night sky, all we can see are stars
and planets which make up only a small fraction of what's out there.
But, there's so much more. Wavelengths beyond our capacity to see them
with our eyes hold wonders and answers to questions previously thought to
be unanswerable. To help acquaint you with the sky and the different
wavelengths astronomers use, we have put together a page of interesting
objects to view. Just place these names in the coorindate value box
and select the appropriate survey and enjoy the show!
