Astronomy Multimedia Presentations
Welcome to our site!

These web pages contain a number of multimedia presentations created at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Florida using Microsoft's PowerPoint Presentation software. We make them available in both PowerPoint and HTML format.

These presentations were partly sponsored by an IDEAS grant from the Space Telescope Science Institute.

We plan to continually add new presentations, so check back with us again soon!

For optimal viewing of these presentations please read on carefully:

  • Make sure that your web browser supports HTML forms, frames and JavaScript. Recent versions of Netscape Communicator and Microsoft Internet Explorer support all these features.

    Your browser is NOT JavaScript-enabled!

    If your browser supports JavaScript,
    please edit its settings to enable JavaScript, then reload this page!
    If your browser does not support JavaScript,
    please download a more recent browser (try the links listed above)

  • It is highly recommended that you use a video display resolution of at least 1024x768 (you should be able to enlarge your browser window until there is no horizontal scroll bar at the bottom).

  • You should also use a video display that supports at least 256 colors (8-bit video). Video displays of thousands (16-bit high-color) or millions (24-bit true-color) of colors are highly recommended --astronomical images can be very colorful!
