The Contingent Universe

DESCRIPTION: The sixth of a group of pages on Astronomy (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in observational astronomy, including instruments and techniques, and ground or Earth-based observatories. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Observational Astronomy, the study of Stars and Galaxies, and the pursuit of Amateur Astronomy.

KEYWORDS: astronomical institute; astronomical instrument; astronomical technique; astronomy; astronomy department; astrophysics; cosmos; ground-based astronomy; observational astronomy; observatory; telescope; universe

God said, "Let there be light." And there was light.

Genesis 1:3

The rivers of light flow to our eyes, and we shall trace them back to their source.

Michael Rowan-Robinson

If thou be'st born to strange sights,
Things invisible go see,
Ride ten thousand days and nights,
Till Age snow white hairs on thee;
Thou, when thou return'st, wilt tell me
All strange wonders that befell thee...
