Characteristic images[edit]

Astrobiology[edit]

{{Anthropology resources}} Template:Biology resources

Astrochemistry[edit]

{{Chemistry resources}} {{Materials science resources}} {{Phosphate biochemistry}}

Astrography[edit]

Template:Geography resources

Geography - include VerbiestBeijingObservatory.jpg, A 17th century European drawing of the Beijing Observatory, and the Cheomseongdae.jpg from South Korea. Sounding rocket launching locations in Natal, Brazil, Australia, and Africa. Satellite tracking stations. Cape Canaveral and Vandenberg AFB. ESA launch locations. Either Kapustin Yar or the other base. Antarctica. How did the Chinese locate themselves and objects in the sky?
The Sun has latitude and longitude assigned to Active Regions, how?

Astrogeology[edit]

{{Geology resources}}

Astrohistory[edit]

{{History of science resources}} Template:History resources

Consider pyramids of Egypt. Include as much ancient history as possible and reserve Radiation history for more recent radiation astrohistory.

History - info available in Indian astronomy, Islamic astronomy, and Babylonian astronomy. And, Calendar aswan.JPG.
- Temporal studies, ancient clocks or motion calibrators.
- Some of the images aimed at Geography can be used in History instead.

Astromathematics[edit]

{{Mathematics resources}}

Mathematics - include geometry and gravityless laws of planetary motion based on proportions, circles, ellipses, ratio of bodies.
- Lead into astrometry, parallax (all kinds).
- Discs versus spheres above. Shapes in general. Doesn't have a section on the Constellations.


Astrophysics[edit]

{{Physics resources}}

Physics - needs a section on electric/magnetic, weak and strong. Bremsstrahlung, cyclotron, and synchrotron. Astronomical analogies: loops on the Sun.
- needs a short section on high precision time measurement (atomic clocks).
Radiative dynamo, user page.

Astroscience[edit]

{{Sciences resources}}

Science - needs an example for each progressively further away objects: fog, cloud (stratosphere), altocumulus, cirrocumulus, aurora, interlunar media, Moon, interplanetary media, Sun, Jupiter, Pluto, Alpha Centauri, Andromeda galaxy, intergalactic medium, Universe.
- needs introduction as to why humans sometimes worship or mythologize objects in the sky.
- light year vs. parsec and au.

Astrotechnology[edit]

{{Flight resouces}} {{Repellor vehicle}} {{Technology resources}}

Publicity: The original research project searching for early telescopes is a Special Story for This month in GLAM May 2013

Technology - may need more on computers and programming.

Planetary science[edit]

Additional info may be found and usable in Solar System History 374 2536.

Radiation astronomy[edit]

{{Principles of radiation astronomy}}

a Radar astronomy section exists in Astrophysics Source Code Library
needs spatial distribution, spectral distribution, and temporal distribution.
needs examples of use of mathematics in X-ray astronomy. Such as an error box on celestial sphere for another astronomical X-ray source as yet not rediscovered.
expand 'Astronomical X-ray source'.

Regional astronomy[edit]

Source astronomy[edit]

Produce at least one Lesson per a first type of radiation per constellation.

Theoretical astronomy[edit]

The field of theoretical astronomy should encompass the theory for each aspect of astronomy and a bit about what is theory and what is astronomy.

or should be Classification of astronomical X-ray sources?
