Who are … The Greeks
A model of the universe in which the earth is at the center
What is… geocentric
It is the Greek word for the sun, often used as a prefix
What is Helio?
He’s known for proposing that the orbits of the planets were oval, or elliptical.
Who is… Kepler?
Galileo’s observations of these two planets helped to secure the theory of a sun- centered system
What are… Venus and Jupiter?
The orbital motion of planets is a balance between gravity and this.
What is… Inertia?
If gravity disappeared, the earth would do this.
What is… Travel in a straight line, at a constant speed
All of the inner planets are this type of planet, meaning rocky and solid in form
What is… terrestrial
It’s the only outer “planet” that is not a Gas Giant and does not have a ring around it
What is … Pluto
Unlike manmade ones that transmit radio signals or help us with global mapping, planets are natural __ that orbit the sun.
What are… Satellites?
A place where sunlight tends to hit Earth at an angle.
What are… The poles?
They occur in March and September.
What are… Equinoxes?
The sun is directly overhead at this latitude line, at noon on Darien’s summer solstice.
What is… The Tropic of Cancer? (23.5 degrees N)
The rays of the sun get more and more indirect and the days get shorter as the seasons go from __ to __
What are… Summer to fall / fall to winter?
This place experiences several days when the sun never rises during winter
What is… The North Pole / South Pole?
You have to be in it to see a total solar eclipse
What is… The moon’s umbra?
Occurs when the moon is directly between the earth and the sun
What is… Solar Eclipse?
The phase of the moon during a solar eclipse
What is… New?
The type of tide that happens during an eclipse
What is… Spring Tide?
Sun’s halo visible only during a total solar eclipse
What is… The Corona?
My tidal range if my low tide is at 1 m And my high tide is at 7 m
What is… 6m?
The type of tide that is approaching: DateHigh Tide (m) November 47.3 November 56.8 November 66.5
What is… Neap?
The phase of moon that is approaching: DateLow Tide (m) November 47.3 November 56.8 November 66.5

DateHighTide (m) November 47.3 November 56.8 November 66.4 November 76.9 November 87.2 The relative positions of Earth, Moon, and Sun that will occur on Nov. 6th
What is… at a right angle?
The phases of the moon that occur between a neap tide and the following spring tide (2 answers)
What are… Waxing gibbous and waning crescent?
A planet would do this if its inertia disappeared
What is… Get pulled into the sun?
Cooler areas on the sun’s surface
What is… sunspots?
This inner planet has two moons, whose names mean FEAR (Phobos) & PANIC (Deimos)
What is … Mars?
Took amazing notes and collected data for 20 years, for which Kepler was very thankful.
Who is… Tycho Brahe?
Planets closest to the sun have orbital speeds much __ than those of outer planets
What is… faster?
Make your wager
Astronomer James Christy discovered this moon when he observed that its distant, tiny mother “planet” appeared to have a bump on one side.
What is… Charon (Pluto’s moon)
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. Actually, the galaxy isnt that far away. In fact, we live in it. Its called the Milky Way. The Milky Way is a spiral.
