Here are the 8th grader’s astro-images, the “M” followed by some number, indicates the Messier object the student worked with, and they added their initials to personalize their work.
What they did: The 8th graders worked together to each find a Messier object using Google Sky and then worked with the Aladin astronomy software to create an image (Google Sky & Aladin are both free & online). The students then doctored the colors in RGB images they made with the software, put their initials on their final images, and uploaded them to NDeRC’s Flickr.
