Did you know that there are many astronomy data archives, all publicly available? Or, did you have a cloudy night but still want to do some astronomy? Do you really want to see the sky tonight but you also like running water & A/C? There is a ton of research-quality astronomy data available to you *right now*. You just need to know how to get access to it! In order to understand how astronomical images work, you need to know about what color images really are, so I'll spend time on that. I'll cover a few of the many ways that you can get access to real data, from citizen science web-based projects to FITS files. I'll cover a few basics of how to interpret astronomy images, & demonstrate how to get access to NASA's Infrared Science Archive (IRSA).
