In this Science NetLinks lesson, students make their own night-sky observations, diagram and describe what they see, and then look at pictures taken by telescopes. They compare the two ways of observing to confirm what telescopes can reveal about the night sky. They also learn about Galileo and contemplate how the telescope helped him make his discoveries 400 years ago.
