Information Description

This is the Excel spreadsheet for use with the What's the Season? workflow (see list of attributions). It contains the object name, RA, Dec, magnitude, and distance. The spreadsheet was built using the following sources. Dolan (n.d.), Frommert & Kronberg (2007), and Kronberg (1998) were consulted the most, with some RA/Dec values coming from Wikipedia.
