Explore the Universe with telescopes you control over the Internet!

This technology tool provides a unique learning experience for budding astronomers and artists. The night sky inspires a deep sense of wonder. In the Science Education Department at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO), they harness that wonder using their MicroObservatory Robotic Telescope Network.  Anyone can access these telescopes the same way SAO astronomers access NASA space observatories or ground-based facilities—remotely using computer and digital communications technologies. 


NASA has announced International Observe the Moon Nights. This is a time to come together with fellow Moon enthusiasts and curious people worldwide. 

This is a great opportunity to promote nature, science and culture for K-12 education!
