  22. 22. Kepler’s 3rd Law  Kepler's third law, the law of periods, relates the time required for a planet to make one complete trip around the Sun to its mean distance from the Sun. "For any planet, the square of its period of revolution is directly proportional to the cube of its mean distance from the Sun." Applied to Earth satellites, Kepler's third law explains that the farther a satellite is from the Earth, the longer it will take to complete an orbit, the greater the distance it will travel to complete an orbit, and the slower its average speed will be  http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/feat ures/movies/kepler.html The main point of Kepler’s third law is to measure distances between planets

  25. 25. Phases of the moon
  26. 26. Because it takes the Earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun, we end up with one extra day every 4 years. So the year with the extra day is called leap year.  APOD: 2000 February 29 - Julius Caesar and Leap Days  apod.nasa.gov417 × 415Search by image
  27. 27. The sun warms the earth differently according to Tilt of the Earth. This change in the tilt of the earth is what causes the seasons.  The precession causes the vernal equinox point g to migrate clockwise along the Earth's orbit, shifting the Earth�s seasons relative to the orbit's eccentric shape; this motion constitutes the "precession of the equinoxes." The angle v between g and P is the moving longitude of perihelion and is used in the precession index esinv to track Earth-Sun distance.   http://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub /data/paleo/softlib/analyseries/
  28. 28. Precession is the change in direction of the axis, but without any change in the tilt. This changes the relative positions of the stars but does not affect the seasons.  frontierscientists.com525 × 176Search by image  A representation of the solar system. / Courtesy NASA

  30. 30. Barycenter is the point between two objects where they balance each other.  doppspec-above.en.gif  spaceplace.nasa.gov300 × 243Search by image  As seen from above, a large planet orbits a star–or rather the star and planet orbit their shared center of mass, or barycenter.
  31. 31. The gravity of the moon pulls on the ocean’s water. This causes tides.  Scijinks :: Tidal weirdness  scijinks.nasa.gov500 × 284Search by image  Drawing shows Moon's gravity pulling about 45 degrees from pull of sun's gravity. Their combined pull is greatest at a point between, thus creating the highest tide there, rather than when the Moon is directly overhead.
  32. 32. Both the pull of gravity from the sun and the moon cause tides.  web.ics.purdue.edu586 × 264Search by image  The Moon in turn induces tides on Earth - both ocean and solid Earth tides. These tides vary on a 12-hour interval basis.
  33. 33. There is a bulge at the equator of the Earth because the circumference around the equator is slightly bigger than the circumference around the poles.  This is a "full-disk" image of the Earth taken from the GOES-11 satellite at 8 a.m. EDT on Aug. 12. Credit: NASA/GOES Project
