How could you prove how to discover more galaxies or planets? (Alycia)
How can you record/chart the temp. and colors of planets?(Alycia)
Link to an example of a graph. *https://www.e-education.psu.edu/astro801/content/l4_p2.html*
What color is the light emitted by the sun? If you look up in the middle of the day, you might say something like white or yellow. Later, during sunset, you might tell me it's red. The real answer is that the sunlight is a mixture of a lot of different colors! All of the ones we just went over and lots more.If you've ever used a prism to make a rainbow out of sunlight, you created a spectrum, an arrangement of light according to wavelength in this case, of visible light.
A System of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust. held together by gravitational attraction.
The collection of eight planets and their moons in orbit around the sun, together with smaller bodies in the form of asteroids, meritorious, etc,etc.
the milky way
The Spiral galaxy holding up most of the brightest planets.
How are the sun and moon related?How are they different list 3 reasons for each(Alycia)
1.The sun is 400 times bigger than the moon,but the sun is also 400 times furtherer away from the moon.
2.The sun and moon pull earth the same direction.
3.The sun and moon both give earth light,not as much but they both give off light.
1.The sun is a gas giant .
2.The moon is a barren piece of rock.
3.The sun directly gives off light.
Explain what happens when a comet is formed.(Alycia)
A comet is an icy body that releases gas or dust. They are often compared to dirty snowballs.Comets contain dust, ice, carbon dioxide, ammonia, methane and more.Astronomers think comets are leftovers from the gas, dust, ice and rocks that initially formed the solar system.
Who discovered that earth was not circular but spherical? (Alycia)
Describe how lightyears are used to measure distance and sizes in the universe.(Brianna)
List 3 types of galaxies or ones that exist right now. (Brianna)
- Elliptical,Spiral,and Irregular.
Define/describe 3 components of the universe. (Brianna)
Planets and Their satellites.
Asteroids, Meteoroids, comets, and interplanetary dust.
How could you describe our galaxies temp./colors? (Brianna)
What facts are most important about the moon that we need to include?Include at least 4 facts. (Brianna)
1. The Moon is not a Planet, it is more of a Satellite for Earth.
2.The Moon has no global magnetic field.
3.The surface area of the moon is 44,658,000 square miles or 9.4 billion acres.
4.From Earth, we always see the same side of the moon; the other side is always hidden.
How to advertise the origins of the galaxy?(Riley)
How are the wavelengths traveled through the universe?(Riley)
How would you describe the sun?(Riley)
How many facts should we include about stars/galaxies?You decide how many and you think of that many facts about stars/galaxies.(Riley)
What examples can you find to create a planet?(Riley)
2. Solar System: The Collection of eight planets and their moons in orbit around the sun.
3. Planet: A celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around the star.
4.Star: A fixed luminous point in the night sky that is a large a system of millions or billions of stars
5.Galaxy-A system of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust, held together by gravitational attraction.
6. Nebula: a cloud of gas and dust in out outer space.
7. Light-Year: a unit of astronomical distance equivalent to the distance that the light travels through the year.
8. Apparent Magnitude: The Magnitude of a celestial object as it is actually measured from the earth.
9.Luminosity: The intrinsic brightness of a celestial object.
10. Absolute Magnitude: The brightness of a celestial object as it would be seen at a slandered distance.
11. White dwarf: A very small white planet that evolves around another planet
12. Super Nova: Is an astronomical term for a star that explodes like crazy. When a star turns into a supernova.
13.Neutron Star-A celestial object of very small radius and very high density, composed predominantly of closely packed neutrons.
14,H-R.Diagram- A graphical tool that astronomers use to classify stars according to their luminosity, spectral type, color, temperature and evolutionary stage.
15.Main Sequence-A series of star types to which most stars belong, represented on a Hertzsprung–Russell diagram as a continuous band extending from the upper left (hot, bright stars) to the lower right (cool, dim stars).
16.Wavelength-The distance between one peak or crest of a wave and the next peak or crest.
17.Electromagnetic spectrum-The range of wavelengths or frequencies over which electromagnetic radiation extends.
18.Spectrum-Used to classify something, or suggest that it can be classified, in terms of its position on a scale between two extreme or opposite points.19. Red-shift-The displacement of spectral lines toward longer wavelengths in radiation from distant galaxies and celestial objects.
- 20.Big Bang Theory-The Big theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe from the earliest know periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution.
- 21.Cosmic Microwave Background(CMB)-The thermal radiation left over from the time of recombination in Big Bang cosmology.
