VOYAGES THROUGH SPACE AND TIME is a lab manual that accompanies the Macintosh software program VOYAGER II, the Interactive Desktop Planetarium. With a celestial database of many thousands of objects, VOYAGER II recreates the sky at any time and from any location, prints star charts, and animates the motions of the planets and the stars. VOYAGES THROUGH SPACE AND TIME uses the power and simplicity of desktop computers as an integral part of learning astronomy. Introductory chapters provide general astronomical information. The following chapters discuss specific material and contain projects addressing the motions of celestial objects, astronomical coordinate systems, time, and other topics (see table of contents).
