A brief introduction to the entire rainbow of light, how it's measured, and what astronomers learn from it. We'll talk a little about types of stars, how we know the chemical compositions of stars, and how we know how fast stars are going. We'll round out the talk and solve the riddle of what information stellar rainbows contain.
