4 Astronomers Planets Eclipses Tides Wild Card Seasons

5 Named the planets because they are “wandering stars”

6 Who are … The Greeks

7 A model of the universe in which the earth is at the center

8 What is… geocentric

9 It is the Greek word for the sun, often used as a prefix

10 What is Helio?

11 He’s known for proposing that the orbits of the planets were oval, or elliptical.

12 Who is… Kepler?

13 Galileo’s observations of these two planets helped to secure the theory of a sun- centered system

14 What are… Venus and Jupiter?

15 The orbital motion of planets is a balance between gravity and this.

16 What is… Inertia?

17 If gravity disappeared, the earth would do this.

18 What is… Travel in a straight line, at a constant speed

19 All of the inner planets are this type of planet, meaning rocky and solid in form

20 What is… terrestrial

21 It’s the only outer “planet” that is not a Gas Giant and does not have a ring around it

22 What is … Pluto

23 Unlike manmade ones that transmit radio signals or help us with global mapping, planets are natural __ that orbit the sun.

24 What are… Satellites?

25 A place where sunlight tends to hit Earth at an angle.

26 What are… The poles?

27 They occur in March and September.

28 What are… Equinoxes?

29 The sun is directly overhead at this latitude line, at noon on Darien’s summer solstice.

30 What is… The Tropic of Cancer? (23.5 degrees N)

31 The rays of the sun get more and more indirect and the days get shorter as the seasons go from __ to __

32 What are… Summer to fall / fall to winter?

33 This place experiences several days when the sun never rises during winter

34 What is… The North Pole / South Pole?

35 You have to be in it to see a total solar eclipse

36 What is… The moon’s umbra?

37 Occurs when the moon is directly between the earth and the sun

38 What is… Solar Eclipse?

39 The phase of the moon during a solar eclipse

40 What is… New?

41 The type of tide that happens during an eclipse

42 What is… Spring Tide?

43 Sun’s halo visible only during a total solar eclipse

44 What is… The Corona?

45 My tidal range if my low tide is at 1 m And my high tide is at 7 m

46 What is… 6m?

47 The type of tide that is approaching: DateHigh Tide (m) November 47.3 November 56.8 November 66.5

48 What is… Neap?

49 The phase of moon that is approaching: DateLow Tide (m) November 47.3 November 56.8 November 66.5

50 What is… Full / New?

51 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

52 What is… at a right angle?

53 The phases of the moon that occur between a neap tide and the following spring tide (2 answers)

54 What are… Waxing gibbous and waning crescent?

55 A planet would do this if its inertia disappeared

56 What is… Get pulled into the sun?

57 Cooler areas on the sun’s surface

58 What is… sunspots?

59 This inner planet has two moons, whose names mean FEAR (Phobos) & PANIC (Deimos)

60 What is … Mars?

61 Took amazing notes and collected data for 20 years, for which Kepler was very thankful.

62 Who is… Tycho Brahe?

63 Planets closest to the sun have orbital speeds much __ than those of outer planets

64 What is… faster?

65 Make your wager

66 Astronomer James Christy discovered this moon when he observed that its distant, tiny mother “planet” appeared to have a bump on one side.

67 What is… Charon (Pluto’s moon)
