These printables, lessons, and activities for space sciences are out of this world! Encourage students to explore what is known about the universe, and imagine what is still to be discovered with these cross-curricular teaching resources.
Before we get into the subject of gravity and how it acts, it's important to understand the difference between weight and mass. We often use the terms "mass" and "weight" interchangeably in our daily speech, but to an astronomer or a physicist they are completely different things. The mass of a body ...
From A around the moon's orbit to B is the sidereal period (think with respect to the stars), while from A all the way to C is the synodic period. We intend to measure the sidereal period of the moon by noting how the moon moves with respect to a nearby star. From night to night the moon moves roughly 13° toward the east.
Let’s calculate the phase of the moon on 3/1/2017: 1) Express the date as Y = 2017, M = 3, D = 1. 2) Since the month March (M=3), we don’t need to adjust the values. 3) With a calculator, do the following calculations: a. A = Y/100 and then record the integer part A = 20 b. B = A/4 and then record the integer part B = 5 c. C = 2 -A+B C = 13 d.
A similar series exists for the position of the Sun, and this will be added soon to allow calculations of the phase, position angle and parallactic angle of the Moon. BASIC listing Below is the QBASIC listing for the Moon position program.
The WatchNetwork moon phase calendar shows you how the moon appears today in order for you to set your watch without having to wait for nightfall or a clear night sky. There is no precise setting for each watch, but this visual image of the moonphase should be all you need.
