[2.10] Introducing Astronomy Spectrum of the Week

J. Grams, R. Benjamin (U of Wisconsin-Whitewater)

We introduce a new website for astronomy education and outreach, entitled ``Astronomy Spectrum of the Week." Patterned after the highly successful ``Astronomy Picture of the Day," this website will highlight an interesting or educational astronomy spectrum each week. In addition to a short text description of each spectrum and its astronomical significance, parts of the spectrum will be clickable so an interested user can find out how spectral features map into physical information about the astronomical sources. A searchable archive of previously highlighted spectra and a short glossary of terms relevant to astrophysical spectroscopy is also included as part of the website. This project was supported by a NASA E/PO supplement to FUSE guest investigator grant NAG5-12196.
