Abstract: The optical and infrared spectra of a wide variety of `cool- astronomicalobjects including the Sun, sunspots, K-, M- and S-type stars, carbon stars,brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets are reviewed. The review provides thenecessary astronomical background for chemical physicists to understand andappreciate the unique molecular environments found in astronomy. Thecalculation of molecular opacities needed to simulate the observed spectralenergy distributions is discussed.
