Sources to Use
You will use a variety of scientific resources to complete your star report. These sources may include any of the following (and probably some sources we didn't think of!):
- lecture notes from ASTR 203
- information from Starry Night
- information from star catalogues, star encyclopedias, star atlases
- information in SIMBAD that links you to article citations (find the original article)
- information from books (print books or ebooks)
- scholarly journal articles
- astronomy magazine articles
- news sources
- audio / video sources (did you watch a science video that talks about your star?)
Make sure to cite all the resources you use - you will need to provide that information in your star report.
