Welcome to Rami Rekola's Encyclopædia Galactica. These pages contain
information about astronomy and astrophysics - mainly of topics of my own
interest. Pages are updated infrequently, but if you would like to see
some topic covered or term explained, just let me know. My email address
can be found from my home page. I hope you enjoy your visit here!
In this section a brief description is offered on astronomical and physical
topics (terms, objects, etc.). All entries are listed in alphabetical order.
If you are interested to learn more about a certain topic, you may
find these pages useful. A lengthy description with images and tables,
sometimes even photos and movies, is given.
I have made some neat programs for astronomical calculations.
All programs operate in English and are freeware. Flagship of the
programs is coordinate conversion tool CooC that can convert
astronomical coordinates from any coordinate system to any other.
You can find some entertaining (but also informative) items here; e.g.
travel accounts and neat photos.
What would a web site be without links to even more web sites.
The list is not attempting to be comprehensive. Rather it contains
some of the most obvious links and points to other, more comprehensive
