Frostburg State Planetarium presents Jan,Feb,Mar 2010 Sky Sights for Primary Grades & Beginners by Dr. Weave Doyle Next Version: Early March 2010

Slide 3

Big Topics Treated Horizon, Finding bearings, Sunrise/Sunset How Day Sky Works, Twilight AM & PM Moon nuts and bolts, Made of what? Woman in moon? Brilliant focuses in night? Planets Jan,Feb,Mar’10 Best Stars & Star Groups Seen Jan-Mar Even. 3 Built in Mini Quizzes with answers supplied Jan-Mar’10 Moon Schedule, Planet Table, * Table Planetarium Schedule for 2010 School Yr.

Slide 4

Horizon & Directions When taking a gander at sky, we may see ½ of universe ! The Horizon is line in the middle of ground and sky. Skyline has 4 headings – North, East, South & West. To learn, say N ever E at S alty W orms! North is bearing your shadow focuses in late morning. Sun rises every morning to one side of East (ESE) South is the place sun is most elevated in sky (in early afternoon) Sun sets every evening to one side of West (WSW)

Slide 5

Why does Sun Rise & Set? For a large number of years, people trusted that sun & sky articles moved about Earth consistently! In the 1500’s, Copernicus recommended that the Earth itself was moving, not the sky objects! Copernicus composed that the Earth was turning consistently and circling the sun consistently! It assumed control over a century until most were persuaded that Copernicus was right (on account of Newton). The Earth turns so sun appears to rise and set.

Slide 6

Let’s survey these thoughts What is the line between ground & sky? Is it Ground line? Skyline? Edge of sky? In what bearing are shadows in late morning? Is it North? East? South? alternately West? Why does sun appear to rise and set? Since: Sun is moving? Earth is turning? Record your responses for these inquiries. Answers are: Horizon, North & Earth is turning

Slide 7

How Day Sky Works Sun, our day star is bright to the point that it lights up air, making it gleam blue on a crisp morning. As Earth turns, sun appears to ascend in morning Due to our turning, sun gradually moves right. Sun crests late morning( (12 twelve for standard time) Sun sets close course West as we turn. To discover North, confront where sun goes down and develop your right arm out, focuses North.

Slide 8

Twilight or Dusk? At the point when sun vanishes from our perspective, the air overhead is still ‘seeing’ sun and shining. As we dismiss more from sun, just thin, high air still lit & sky gets darker. This time is sundown or sunset, keeps going 60 minutes. Amid nightfall, splendid planets, brilliant stars show 1 st . By end of nightfall, effortlessly seen star gatherings seen. Generally as nightfall after dusk, day break before dawn.

Slide 9

What about Moon? Our moon is a wad of rock that circles Earth. Moon ¼ as large as Earth; if Earth a consistent globe (1 ft.wide), moon is a tennis ball. On the off chance that Earth is consistent globe, moon is 30 ft.away As moon circles us, we see day & night sides In night, lit side ‘grows’ for 12 days Then moon is full, sparkling all through the night Then in morning sky, moon ‘shrinks’ for 12 days Moon appears to change shape, can’t see night side

Slide 10

Just a tad bit more about Moon The moon NOT a top dog ball! (Sorry!) Man/woman/rabbit at full moon by dull fields Dark fields of hard magma, great to land there Over 40 yrs. prior, 1 st men strolled on moon Perhaps in 2020’s, more moon arrivals Current rockets can’t convey individuals, new rockets required, U.S., China or Russia to attempt

Slide 11

Another survey of thoughts.. As you face nightfall, what focuses North? Back of Head? Right arm (out)? Left ear? In the event that Earth 1 ft. wide, how far away is moon? Is it 10 feet? 30 feet? 100 feet? 300 feet? To what extent does moon ‘grow’ or ‘shrink’? Is it A week? Twelve days? A month? Record your responses to above 3 questions. Answers: Right arm (out), 30 feet, Dozen days

Slide 12

Bright focuses we see around evening time? Indeed, even the closest planets show up as * (focuses) as we see them with our eyes; for even these items extremely far away (if moon dist.=1, Venus dist.= 100) To tell a planet from a star, throughout the night stars twinkle and planets as a rule sparkle unfaltering. Likewise satellites (particularly Space Station) sparkle consistently as wet blanket eastbound crosswise over sky Night stars are far off suns, outrageously far away contrasted with our planet neighbors. On the off chance that Earth penny size, moon 22” away, sun 730 ft. away (6.3 ft. wide), closest star is 37,000 mi.away

Slide 13

Easy Jan-Mar.’10 Planets Evenings through right on time February, brilliant Jupiter in W Moon close Jupiter 1/17, excessively near sun Feb.,Mar. To begin with number is month number/2 nd is date Venus seen low in W in March, yet not in Febr.

Let’s survey once more… How to tell a planet from a star? Planet constantly brighter Planet sparkles consistent Brightest Evening , Brightest Midnight planet? (Jupiter PM-Jan., Mars M) (Mars PM, Venus M) Which a piece of Big Dipper focuses to N.Star? End of Scoop or Arch of Dipper’s Handle Write down your Answers: Pl. enduring, Jup. PM, Mars M, Scoop

Slide 20

Frequently made inquiries What are falling stars? (Otherwise known as falling stars) Nearly all are pea surveyed space coarseness blazing in our upper environment. Just tidy left. Could the planets line up like globules on string? No, circles are tilted yet regardless of the possibility that they could, force is to a great degree feeble, contrasted with moon. What keeps stars, planets gliding in sky? There’s no up/down in space. Earth drifts as well!
