The purpose of this project was to understand how information is gathered about stars, constellations, and galaxies, specifically the constellation Leo. Information gathered for this project includes how a star's position can be used to calculate the length of the year and how the mass and spectral type of a specific star can show when the star will die. This is a project for the Natural Sciences Poster Session at Parkland College
