Description Human eyes can see stars only through a small window called the “visible spectrum.” But stars emit light in a much wider range of wavelengths known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Examining light in these different wavelengths through spectroscopes can tell us many things about stars, including their temperature, distance, radial velocity, and chemical composition.
