The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This material uses the Sun as an example of diverse parts of physics. Topics include weather and climate, magnetism and the interplanetary field, color, spectra and the electromagnetic spectrum, nuclear energy and its release in stars and on Earth, and stellar evolution. This is part of a wider site "From Stargazers to Starships" which has related lesson plans, glossary, timeline, problems, and Spanish and French translations. Specific parts can be studied separately, e.g. on nuclear energy and on weather and climate.
