Hello everyone. I'm going to take part in an astronomy olympiad on February 8th. So of course, I need some help from you people. Any type of help is welcome. Especially links of star-charts, basics of astronomy and phycis, recent discoveries etc will be the most helpful.

p.s: I couldn't think of anywhwere else to post this. Confused

Regards

You picked a good place.   Why not try out the StarDome feature right here on Astronomy.com for your star charts.  Alternatively, Sky and Telescope's Pocket Sky Atlas is a good choice.

There are quite a few links in my post entitled Advice for Beginning Amateur Astronomers under General Stargazing that should be helpful.

You may want to take an online astronomy course or tutorial such as the one at https://www.udemy.com/astronomy-state-of-the-art/

There are many lectures on astronomy available on YouTube.
