Astronomy Review

Challenge #2

Greetings fellow science learners!

We have been busy during the third quarter learning about Astronomy. There were many concepts that may have been new to you.

Please share a comment stating your favorite new thing about Astronomy. Make sure that you include at least 2 details about what the one thing you are sharing.

    Astronomy is the study of space.In astronomy you learn about different planets stars and constellations.

    I learned that the way astronomers classify galaxies as either spiral, elliptical, or irregular is with a Hubble tuning fork. Edwin Hubble’s research proved other galaxies existed beyond our Milky Way.

    We see different constellations every season. We revolve around sun and see other parts of the galaxy.

    I learned about eclipses. A solar eclipse is when the moon comes between the Earth and Sun. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon. Not many eclipses occur because earth’s orbit isn’t perfect, and many times when eclipses do occur, they aren’t total eclipses.

    I learned a lot about the tides and how they work.
    The high and low tides are cause by where the moon phase and where it is. Spring and Neap tides only appear two times a month.

    My favourite part of the Astronomy section was Moon Phases. When the Moon is between the Sun and Earth it is a New Moon, and when behind the Earth it is a Full Moon.

    Here’s what I learned about Astronomy: Every day 2 high and 2 low tides occur because of how the moon rotates around the earth. What ever side the moon is on that is where the high tide is at, on the opposite side of where the moon is that is where the other high tide is at.

      The other two sides are low tides. The reason why on the opposite side of where the moon is also a high tide is because the moon is also pulling Earth towards it.

      Also there is 4 tides a day so each is about 6 hrs apart.

    In Astronomy I have learned that the equinox’s and solstice’s affect Earth’s seasons based on where the the sunlight is pointing on Earth, and Earth’s revolution. For example a June solstice is when the north pole is leaning towards the sun, and the south pole is leaning away from the sun causing the June solstice.

    I learned Elliptical Galaxies are shaped like Eggs. When the Moon is between the Sun and Earth it is a New Moon, and when behind the Earth it is a Full Moon.In Astronomy I have learned that the equinox’s and solstice.I learned about eclipses and a lot more. Every day 2 high and 2 low tides occur because of how the moon rotates around the earth.I LOVE LEARNING ABOUT MOON PHASES.
