NASA’s Astrophoto Challenges Winter 2020 ∙ Messier 82 Galaxy

The NASA’s Universe of Learning (UoL) team created the NASA’s Astrophoto Challenges to enable learners to work with real astronomical data from NASA missions and tools and data from SAO’s online MicroObservatory Robotic Telescope Network. In the winter 2020 challenges, learners created their own beautiful images of the iconic starburst galaxy Messier 82. The winter challenge made archival data from Chandra, GALEX, Hubble, and Spitzer available to learners (https://mo-www.cfa.harvard.edu/OWN/astrophoto/index.html).
