Site Map for

The Web Nebulae
Pictures and a bit of explanation of a couple dozen of the more spectacular nebulae in the night sky. The emphasis here is on aesthetics, not science.

The World's Largest Telescopes
Lists all the major optical observatories in the world today. I also have a big list of amateur observatories; these are somewhat less elaborate but you can have a similar one for yourself.
Astronomy Software
Links to planetarium and sky simulation software.
Messier Objects
Images from the Digitized Sky Survey as posted on by Richard Bright.
NGC Objects
The Grove Creek Observatory archive of NGC images.
(See also my page about the cryptic NGC codes.)
The Nine Planets
A Multimedia Tour of the Solar System: describes the history, mythology and current scientific knowledge of each of the planets and moons and other objects in our solar system. In addition to the usual pictures, there are also sounds, an occasional movie and many links to other net resources. The text is written for a general audience not necessarily knowledgeable in astronomy; technical terms are linked to an extensive glossary.

Bill Arnett
A little about me, the usual pithy quotes, contact info, etc.
