It has published results of the latest professional research and provided amateur astronomers with customized star charts and other tools for observing the heavens. If you know where on the Web to look. This program will be an introduction to some of
the websites that chart the skies, publish the pictures, and report the research - all delivered free of charge to your computer screen.
