Spectrum Simulations


These simulations are used to visualize how we use spectra to determine various properties of astronomical objects.

Three-View Spectrum


Simulation to illustrate the objects that produce emission, continuous, and absorption spectra.


Simulation to illustrate the spectra of different elements.

Elements available currently are H, He, C, O, Fe, Na, Ca, and Ti.
