Astronomy notes 1: Notes on the history of Astronomy, Earth's seasons, moon's phases, and Earth's tides with video links

  1. 1. Astronomy 1 ppt. by Robin D. Seamon
  2. 2. NOTE OUTLINE: 1.Historical Astronomers 2.Motion 3.Cycles: • Seasons • Moon phases • tides
  3. 3. FAMOUS ASTRONOMERS of the PAST
  4. 4. PTOLEMY •Worked with sundials & trigonometry •astronomer who accepted the common idea that the planets & Sun traveled around the Earth! (geocentric view) WRONG!!! COPERNICUS (1473-1543) •Proposed that the Earth & other planets revolved around the sun (heliocentric view) •People did NOT like this idea! RIGHT IDEA!!! http://www.cyfronet.pl/~n1kokow s/poszukiwania_en.html http://students.ou.edu/G/Summ er.D.Golden-1/coverpage.html
  5. 5. GALILEO GALILEI (1564-1642) •Used the invention of the telescope & mathematics to look at the universe •Observed The Milky Way, the moon, Jupiter’s moons & more http://ml.shapiro.gs/?p=64 http://www.wwnorton.com/college/engli sh/nael/18century/topic_3/illustrations/i mtelescope.htm PBS: Telescopes NOVA: VIDEO Galileo- Sun-centered universe (5 min)

  7. 7. MOTION VOCABULARY: •Axis: The tilt on which the earth spins (rotates) •Latitude: lines running on a map or globe •Longitude: lines running on a map or globe •Rotation: spinning around from one point & back around •Orbit: the path one body follows around another body •Revolution: the movement of a body in orbit from one point back to that point; one complete trip ADVANCE

  11. 11. JOHANNES KEPLER: (1600) Mathematician & astronomer •Kepler’s laws of motion: •objects travel in an ellipse around another object •objects move faster when closest to the sun and slower when farthest from the sun •the more distant from the sun an object is, the longer it takes to orbit the sun http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencef acts/scientists/johanneskepler.html http://kepler.nasa.gov/johannes/#anchor784359 VIDEO: Planetary orbits are Eliptical
  12. 12. SIR ISAAC NEWTON: (1643-1727) Mathematician & astronomer NEWTON LINKBIOGRAPHY •Newton’s 1st law of Motion: objects remain still or in motion until another force is applied to it (law of inertia) •Newton’s 2nd law of Motion: acceleration happens when a force is acted on an object. The greater the mass of the object, the more force is needed to move it. (f=ma) •Newton’s 3rd law of Motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction •NEWTON LINK: explore the 3 laws http://www.mrdowling. com/601-newton.html

  20. 20. •Moon: a smaller body circling a larger body in space Luna: Earth’s moon •Luna rotates on its axis in about 27.3 Earth days •Luna revolves around the Earth in about 28 Earth days (Therefore, we see the same FACE of the moon) Google Earth images
  21. 21. Luna’s Phases: VOCABULARY • Waxing the appearance of the moon getting larger (more sunlight shining on it as nights go by) • Waning the appearance of the moon getting smaller (less sunlight shining on it as nights go by • Crescent • Gibbous
