"SalsaJ allows students to analyze and explore real astronomical images in the same way as professional astronomers do , allows scientific analysis with data extracted from the images, bringing to the classroom research, photometry workshops, spectra analysis, and sunspot measurements. In this opportunity we will demonstrate the use of SalsaJ software.
