Astronomy Lab 1010

Lab Resources

Check here weekly for class announcements and assignments. Lab attendance is mandatory and meets every Tuesday at 10am unless a holiday is noted. It is up to you to reach out if you miss a lab, but make up work is not guaranteed. Many labs are not possible to complete at home and make up lab sessions are not offered.

Remember to print out a copy of the lab each week. Pre-lab is discussed in the first 5 minutes of class only and counts for 1 pt on each lab grade. There is no make up for the pre-lab.

Work on your term projects and observing report early in the semester to avoid the last minute hustle.

This Week's Lab

Print out your own copy. Don't forget a pencil!
