This web page, part of the Annenberg Media Teachers' Labs, enables visitors to analyze the spectrum of a star and determine its composition. The site displays spectra of various elements and then shows a stellar spectrum, so the user can match spectral lines and identify elements in the star. Several samples of stellar spectra are provided.
This resource is part of a set of teacher workshop materials on light, developed by the Annenberg Media project. SEE RELATED MATERIALS on this page for a link to the full set of materials, "The Science of Light".
