Summer- 93 million miles
During which season is the earth farthest from the sun? How far away is it?
The earth is moving around the sun (revolving) at the same time.
Why does it take two extra days for the moon phase cycle as compared to the revolution
Studied the moon's surface, gets credit for inventing the telescope, observed planets Venus, mares and jupiter
What are Galileo's accomoplishments?
Maria are low lands on the moons surface called Seas. Formed from volcanic lava flows in past
What are Maria? How did they probably form?
Craters: are deep pits in the surface of the moon. They are formed by Meteor impacts
What are Craters? How did they probably form?
The theory that states the moon may have formed when a huge meteor or asteroid hit the earth
The theory that states the moon may have been captured by the earth's gravitational pull
Tides are the rise and fall of the oceans water. The gravitational pull of the moon and sun is the cause.
Neap tide is when the sun, moon and Earth are at a right angle to each other (quarter Phases) and the pull of sun and moon cancel out. Tide range is much less than normal.
Bigger range in tide levels. Higher high tide, lower low tide. Moon and sun's gravitational pull add together.
An explosion of hydrogen gas from the sun's surface that occurs when loops in sun spot regions suddenly connect and are ejected into space
