Recommendations

Recommendations for Integration:  This RWLO is appropriate for one- and two-semester first year courses in astronomy.

Back-up: If students are unable to access the Harvard SIMBAD database or that site appears to be running slowly, they can access the master copy of the database at the France site. See resource page.

In the event that students are unable to access the internet, this exercise can be done by giving the students the following parallax measurements.

Star Name

Parallax (mas)

Betelgeuse

7.63

Bellatrix

13.99

Mintaka

3.56

Alnilam

2.43

Alnitak

3.99

Rigel

4.22

Saiph

4.52

Providing a visual image of the constellation is also helpful. See resource page.
