Website Detail Page

written by Terry Herter
This page contains four interactive simulations on stellar astronomy.  The first simulation, Stellar Parallax, shows how parallax varies with stellar distance.  The second simulation, Eclipsing Binary Stars, simulates the light curve for a binary star system for different viewing angles.  The third simulation, Binary Star System, illustrates the motion and result spectral signatures for a system of two orbiting starts. The final simulation, Stellar Evolution,shows the evolution of different mass stars on the H-R diagram from main sequence to the red giant phase.
