Over the years, we've gathered hundreds of photos showcasing stars, galaxies, nebulas, and more. Here are some of our favorites.
Calvin's astronomy has two telescopes, which are accessible to our students and professors. Our student observers work directly with the telescopes, our astronomy students take pictures of celestial bodies, and our researchers gather data to support their projects. To learn more about student employment, visit our physics and astronomy student employment page. To see more stellar photography, explore our students' photography projects.
