Chandra Explores Angular Size

In this angular size activity, learners read about how astronomers determine the size of objects in the sky by using their angular size. Students are given equations that allow scientists to convert the angular size into kilometers. Learners solve four problems using these equations to determine the diameter and distances to objects in the sky.
