Galaxies and clusters of galaxies are the largest objects in the universe and visible at vast distances. In this course, we will explore the universe of galaxies, how we observe them and what they teach us about themselves and the nature and history of the universe.

Aileen O’Donoghue has taught astronomy at SLU for over 25 years. She is a professional astronomer doing research on galaxies. In Fall 2014, Aileen received the Leon LeBeau SOARing Educator Award, given to someone who has had lasting impact on the lives of SOAR members.
