Background
Vol_Nº0
Nov_Dec_2017
Origins of
Spectra Project
The lecture of Dava Sobel's book " The Cristal Universe" (November-December 2017) inspire to T.Tobal to start a Pro-Am project in basic spectroscopy.

Jan_2018
Origins of
Spectra Project
T.Tobal visit the city of Rome/Vatican and Castel Gandolfo observatory, A.Secchi (1818-1878) workplaces
Vol_Nº0
Jan_2018
Origins of
Spectra Project
In Rome, T.Tobal plan the general lines of the project.

Create a database of spectroscopic images, obtained by amateurs and managed by a Pro-Am team. Include all bright stars (V = 5) from the northern and southern hemispheres, inspired in the classical Henry Draper Catalogue (HD).
Vol_Nº0
Jan_2018
Origins of
Spectra Project
Starting a bibliographic work and search of suitable sources, especially the publications of the Henry Draper Memorial and The Annals of Harvard College Observatory. The formation of a specialized library (classical and modern) will be a constant throughout the project.
