Lyra studies

Image Top
Studies concentrated on one of the smallest of constellations, Lyra, are one way to approach the truly astronomic amount of information astronomers and cosmologists have so patiently gathered and organized about stars, deep sky objects, exoplanets and other objects in God of Israel's magnificent creation - the Universe.

These Lyra pages hopefully assist beginning students of astronomy to penetrate into this challenging world of Aristotelian classifications, scientific definitions and explanations of the observed light and other forms of radiation reaching planet Earth from the perimeters of Lyra. The texts listed below discuss only a fraction of the richness revealed by professional astronomers during centuries in that region of night sky.

The pages listed below contain mostly snippets taken from Wikipedia and other reliable sources. Each page has links to the original articles. These usually contain significantly more information and important references to sources and scholarly works the links serving as gateways to further learning.
