The Strategic Air & Space Museum near Ashland will display raw images of the night sky taken by students in the Youth Capture the Colorful Cosmos Program.

The goal of the Smithsonian-affiliated program is to use hands-on exercises to teach participants how to control the MicroObservatory robotic telescopes over the Internet and take their own astronomy images of the universe.

Images created will be used in astrophotography exhibitions featuring the students’ unique images, captions, poems and comparisons to images taken by NASA's space-based observatories.

Student projects will be on display at the Strategic Air & Space Museum between Lincoln and Omaha beginning Monday through Nov. 23.
