Introduction The earth usually experiences four seasons namely, the winter, spring, summer, and autumn. In understanding the reasons why seasons occur on earth, different people tend to have differed misconceptions on the way that they understand the different reasons behind the seasons (Gould et al., 2000). Each individual has his or her own views on the seasons and this has led to some common misconceptions being drawn from all the experienced misconceptions. This paper will discuss some of the misconceptions that people have on the reasons for seasons, the main reasons for seasons and a discussion of the seasons experienced on other planets in the solar system.
However, a rotation curve of a rigid body must have a body where the angular speed is the same. As a result, this lab will help me understand how individual stars move in a galaxy spiral. This lab will also help me understand why the stars speed in the inner part is different from the outer part of the galaxy. Procedure
The Milky Way Galaxy is just one Galaxy in our universe. THe technology we have helped us make a guess of how many more galaxies are out there. There is an estimate of five billion galaxies in our universe. There could be many more, but we might not ever know. What is a Supernova?
Today virtually every child grows up learning that the Earth orbits the Sun, but four centuries ago the heliocentric solar system, where the Earth orbits the Sun, was so controversial that the Catholic Church classified it as a crime of heresy (UCLA). In the age of early philosophy, Socrates’ is well known. Between the Socratic method and his line of successful students, Socrates’ makes the history books. Galileo Galilei turned astronomers on their heads when he discovered moons around Jupiter. Giordano Bruno didn’t back down from any of his brilliant and different ideas.
Livingston compares the stars of the night sky the gleam he witnesses in the eyes of his own students, using diction relating to astronomy “twinkle” and “shooting star” to instill a sense of wonderment. In order to enlighten his fellow educators of the hidden desire students can have for learning. “I look each of my students in the eye and see the same light that aligned Orion's
The stars shine bright on the vast stage of the galaxy. The awe-inspiring constellations have shifted and torn, casting stars light-years from their position, giving each a dancing partner. Each star compliments their companion and each shine brighter than they could have alone. The stars twinkle softly and watch me watching them. I wish to teach them, for I have lived a long, prosperous life and I know I can teach them so much.
The Kuiper Belt is a wide, massive belt beyond the orbit of Neptune which orbits around the sun. The belt itself is between 30 AU and 50 AU away from the sun and the size is around 20 AU's wide. It is thought to contain tens of millions of ice bodies called KBO's or Kuiper Belt Objects which is mostly made out of water, methane, and ammonia. The most famous of the objects is of course Pluto.
Empedocles believed that aphrodite created the human eye out of earth, fire, water, and air. Aphrodite lit the fire in our eyes allowing us to see. As great as that idea is, it would mean we would be able to see at night as well as we do in the day, so empedocles postulated an interaction between rays from the eyes and rays from a source such as the sun. Euclid observed that "things seen under a greater angle appear greater, and those under a lesser angle less, while those under equal angles appear equal".
Her love for astronomy started when her mother showed her the constellations and it only ended when Annie passes away at the age of seventy-seven. Her legacy lives on because every year the Annie Jump Cannon Award is given to a female astronomer that has distinguished herself through work in astronomy. Cannon’s legacy also continues because her spectral classification is still taught to students
In the third activity, I changed the radius of both stars and the remaining properties of the stars stayed constant. I also described the light curve as the smaller star began to touch the larger star. The light curve decreased on the y-axis and becomes a partial eclipse. Moreover, I explained why the two dips on the light curve was equal. Since, the temperature of star 1 and star 2 have the same temperature, the two dips on the light curve will be equal.
The lunar phase or phase of the moon is the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth. The lunar phases change cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth. The Moon 's rotation is tidally locked by the Earth 's gravity, therefore the same lunar surface always faces Earth. This face is variously sunlit depending on the position of the Moon in its orbit.
I found the article Winter Wonderworlds extremely fascinating as I have a keen interest in the study of space. I believe that the author took an interesting interpretation of the study of other planets and moons that could appeal to all audiences. For a good understanding of this article it would be helpful to have prior knowledge of the planets and moons in our solar system and a good understanding of astronomy. However, it is not necessary that you understand these points when reading the article as the article explains these things in a basic way. This article I found made several good points about what the other planets and moons in our solar system are like on the surface.
8. IranianGenius Each year, hundreds of trees grow because squirrels forget where they buried their food. 9. Tigrael If you took the whole solar system and shrunk it down so that the Sun was at your head and the orbit of Pluto was at your feet, Uranus would be just where you’d expect it to be.
Bright stars fill the Milky Way galaxy with beauty. Many solar systems revolve around the galaxy. The Milky Way is the galaxy we live in. Even though many people only know the Milky Way as the galaxy we live in, there is actually a lot more to it than you may think. 1.
