Celestial stories

The aim of this section is to introduce astronomical articles and inspiring pictures published in newspapers and magazines. In addition to the stories, many publications also include information on the workshops with instructions for immediate use in teaching.



The picture above shows the planet Jupiter with three of its four Galilei moons, photographed through a telescope. This is a picture without any processing, typically taken by an amateur photographer. It is worthwhile to encourage the students to use whatever means they have of photographing the sky. With their experience piling up, the results get better and the joy of succeeding in taking photos increases their willingness of more explorations.
