describe and apply the coordinate system used to locate objects in the sky. distinguish the various methods of measuring astronomical distances and apply each in appropriate situations. 2 You will be able to: determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other astronomy specific words and phrases as they are used in context to relevant topics label diagrams with degree measurements

describe how or why different units of measurement are needed for distances in space 1 You will be able to label diagrams with degree measurements list the different units of measurement needed to measure distances in space Horoscopes General Horoscope:

Constellations- Apparent 2-D pictures Zodiac-12 constellations that are special Lie along Ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun through the sky due to the tilt of the Earth Astronomy vs. Astrology Astrology: 1. The study of the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences

and human affairs. 2. Obsolete Astronomy. Astronomy: The scientific study of matter in outer space, especially the positions, dimensions, distribution, motion, composition, energy, and evolution of celestial bodies and phenomena. Lets start with ASTROLOGY.

It began thousands of years ago in ancient Babylonia, Persia, Greece and Rome. Before the scientific method was devised, people tried to organize their knowledge of the stars by perceiving in them shapes of animals & persons, such as a lion, ram, crab, fish, scorpion, archer, water carrier, twins, etc. They assumed these shapes had cosmic significance. They noticed that during the day, the sun passed through areas in which these shapes were observed at night. The band of shapes

was called the Zodiac, & these shapes were the signs of the Zodiac. It was believed that constellations were powerful when the sun was in their area. If a person was born when the sun was in the part of the sky where the stars were in the shape of a lion the person would have personality

traits that were similar to those of a lion! Sun in Leo But Can we actually see Leo from the earth during the month of August? No, the Sun is much too bright! We need to wait until later Winter to see Leo in the nighttime sky

Everything is also off by an entire sign because Earth has wobbled (procession) in the 2000 years since this was made up These ancients noticed that some lights in the sky moved across the stable arrangement of stars, so they called these wanderers (planets) and imagined that they were gods or homes of gods. The sun was worshipped as the chief god in some lands. One of the planets was reddish so they named it after the

god of war, Mars. Astrologers believed that the arrangement of stars, planets, sun & moon influenced events taking place on earth. Specifically, the arrangement of these heavenly bodies at the time of a persons birth would influence his or her personality and fate. Astrologers believed that if they knew the time & place of a persons birth, they could make predictions about the persons character and destiny.

Some facts: Noted astrologers earn a sizeable income as consultants. To many people, the personal descriptions based on horoscopes seem to fit. BUT THEY DO NOT LOOK TO SEE IF DESCRIPTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH OTHER SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC MIGHT FIT THEM EQUALLY WELL! When told that they are going through some

stress or have to make a major decision, people tend to agree with the astrologer, without examining their lives to see if the same description would fit almost any other period of their lives! Why ASTROLOGY is not a science: Astrology is not derived from natural laws, but from symbolic relationships.

Astrologers do not conduct controlled research to see if their personality assessments and predictions are more accurate than we could expect by chance alone. Some personality descriptions are so GENERAL that they fit everyone! People can find any trait in themselves if they look hard enough. Their knowledge of astrology affects how they see themselves. People tend to remember what fits their expectations and forget what doesnt.

ASTRONOMY is a science that is based on tested theories. It uses the scientific method to investigate hypotheses. Some Questions to Ponder What is the likelihood that onetwelfth of the worlds population is having the same kind of day?

Why is the moment of birth, rather than conception, crucial for astrology? If astrologers are as good at predicting the future as they claim, why arent they richer? Shouldnt we condemn astrology as a form of bigotry? Why do different schools of

astrology disagree so strongly with each other? Are all horoscopes done before the discovery of the two outermost planets incorrect? Did it change when Pluto was reclassified? What if we find Back to Constellationsa part of Astronomy

constellations? a) the celestial equator b) the north celestial pole c) the Milky Way d) the zodiac e) the ecliptic The ecliptic also marks the plane of

Earths orbit around the Sun. Question 3 Stars in a constellation are a) physically close to each other. b) usually equal in brightness. c) about the same age.

d) about the same distance away. e) in the same part of the sky. Question 3 Stars in a constellation are a) physically close to each other. b) usually equal in brightness. c) about the same age.

d) about the same distance away. e) in the same part of the sky. Stars within a constellation might be of very different ages, diameters, types, and luminosities. Exit Ticket! Read article in Canvas: Jetology Compare and Contrast jetology with astrology.
