Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Infrared Astronomy"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Infrared astronomy is the branch of astronomy and astrophysics that studies astronomical objects visible in infrared (IR) radiation. (Web site)
  2. Infrared astronomy is the branch of astronomy and astrophysics which deals with objects visible in infrared (IR) radiation.
