To Guide Entry
Having grown up during the days of the space race to the Moon, I can remember vividly watching the launching of the various space flights and reading about the mysteries of outer space. As a third grade student, I remember being assigned the task of making Mercury for the class model which was to hang from the ceiling of the classroom. Although my Mercury was a small circle of no more than three inches in diameter, I fondly remember how much time I spent deciding on a color and then painstakingly applied paint to that small circle which I regarded as my masterpiece. In remembering this simple event, I realize that in doing this unit, I hope it can produce moments that students will long remember and may even influence them to study science as a life’s career. I know that my students are very enthusiastic about the topic. They are fascinated with any discussion about the stars and outer space. Since this unit is going to try to include discussion about the possibility of life on other planets in our Solar System or beyond, I found it intriguing that a preliminary talk with my students about what they knew about outer space and the planets led to an almost immediate mention of aliens. We made a web of what they knew and it was amazing how their first thoughts were of Martians, and UFOs. For them, any discussion of the Solar System would have to include other life forms.

Astronomy Essays
A Brief History of Astronomy
How humanity came from believing Creation Myths to postulating the Inflationary Big Bang Theory. The key stages in our understanding of our place in the cosmos and the people who broadened our understanding. The Scale of the Universe
In astronomy distances and times are confusing because of the large numbers of zeros in the figures. This is an easy-to-understand scaling of the Universe in both space and time. Distances in space are represented by the time light takes to travel there. The chronology of the Universe is compared to a real year. We Are Stardust
An account of how stars evolve and change the chemistry of the Universe. It turns out that the material that makes up our bodies and surroundings actually comes from within stars that died millions of years ago. Extraterrestrial Life
Is the Earth the only planet with life? The possibility of life on other worlds is discussed. The essay is based on the knowledge we have at present. Defining life is a difficult aspect of this discussion. There is a small digression about UFOs The Calendar
What do we mean by the words day week month year ? Who invented our calendar? When did the third millennium begin? The relation between time and astronomy.

Welcome to the Astro-Nuts Homepage
(The Astronomy Beginner's Help Site)
This site was last updated 8/22/02. Your Author
Welcome the the Astro-Nuts Website and thanks for visiting. I hope to provide some basic beginner's help to my fellow beginning astro-nuts. Astronomy can be both a wonderful and a frustrating hobby. The keys to getting through the frustrations are patience and asking questions.
Astronomers are a unique group of folks who welcome newcomers to the hobby with open arms and are always happy to share their experiences. So, don't be afraid to ask what you may think is a "dumb" question. Chances are we've all asked the same one at some point or another.
The wonderful thing about astronomy is that it opens up the vastness of the universe to you. Thanks to this fantastic hobby I've seen examples of other worlds, other stars, and other galaxies. I've traveled millions of light-years into space and time and all from the comfort of my own backyard.
First, a little information about myself. My name is Kevin Daly, I'm married and a father of 4 currently residing in Seymour, CT. I began in astronomy a few years ago by using 7 X 50 Binoculars. My current scopes are a Celestron 4.5" Newtonian Reflector, a Skywatcher 120mm Refract , both on German Equatorial Mounts, a dobsonian mounted Criterion 8" f/7.5 Newtonian Reflector, a Celestron 60mm Refractor, and a MCO 4" Maksutov Cassegrain Spotting Scope (my "travel scope").

72. High School And Beyond
Are there other worlds around other suns? Relive the first discoveries of planetsaround other stars, and hear about recent findings of even Women in astronomy.
Programs for High Schoolers and Beyond
The following programs are appropriate for high school students and above:
Native American Skylore
Native American Skylore is a look at the nighttime sky, the seasons, the phases of the Moon, and the motions of the planet Venus as seen through the eyes of Native Americans. Included are such topics as Serpent Mound, Native American mythsand legends, and how ancient records are still useful to astronomers today.
Ancient Worlds
Ancient Worlds looks at the barren, rocky worlds of the Solar System: Mercury and our Moon. This program looks at the evolutions of these worlds, and also at comets and meteors as clues to the early Solar System. The program also discusses the birth of our star, the Sun. While Ancient Worlds can be customized to any age, it is strongly recommended that students be previously exposed to Journey Through the Solar System , or its equivalent.
The Weather Out There
We all know how difficult the weather can be. But did you ever wonder what causes it? In this program, your group will learn why we have weather on the Earth and what the weather would be like if we liuved on other planets. Bring your group to experience twisters here on the Earth, dust storms on Mars, and acid rain on Venus!
Jovian Worlds
Jovian Worlds examines the four massive gaseous planets of our Solar System: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. This program discusses these worlds, their satellites, and their rings. It also contains the latest information on Pluto and the possibility of trans-Plutonian worlds. Once again, we strongly recommend that students be previously exposed to

73. Seventh And Eigth Grade Programs
on Pluto and the possibility of transPlutonian worlds. the sky are celebrated inThe Dawn of astronomy. the positions of the Sun and other celestial objects
Programs for Seventh and Eigth Graders
The following programs are appropriate for seventh and eigth graders: The Sky Tonight
The Sky Tonight is a full-length live tour of the night sky for the date of your visit. Students will learn the secrets to finding objects in the current sky, including the visible planets, constellations, some dep sky objects, and the Moon. We will also discuss some of the myths and legends associated with the celestial objects.
So, You Want to Be an Astronomer...?
So, You Want to be an Astronomer...? is a Ritter Planetarium production that takes a look at backyard astronomy and examines what astronomers do and how they do it. It also looks at career options in astronomy. The program is the perfect introduction to the night time sky, amateur astronomy, and the life of astronomers for any student.
Bear Tales , produced by Joe Hopkins Engineering Productions, takes us on a family camping trip out to the dark skies of the forest. Grandpa Ben tells tall tails about the night sky, including Greek and Egyptian mythologies. This program introduces the constellations of the spring sky. It also demonstrates the different views one gets with binoculars, telescopes, or just the human eyes. Bear Tales gets your students involved with generous doses of humor and a sing-a-long.

    Illustration Credit:
    Lynette Cook Explanation: After the latest round of discovery announcements , the list of known worlds of distant suns has grown to 50 . While extrasolar planet discoveries are sure to continue, none - so far - points clearly to another planetary system like our own . Take, for example, the newly discovered parent star . Shining in Earth's night sky at 6th magnitude, this sun-like star lies 137 light-years away in the constellation Orion . Like most of the known extrasolar planets , HD38529's planet was discovered by detecting the telltale Doppler wobble in the parent star's spectrum. The data reveal that this planet orbits once every 14.3 days at an average of only 0.13 times the Earth-Sun distance and has a minimum of 0.77 Jupiter masses (about 240 Earth masses). There is even evidence in the wobble data that HD38529, and other stars with one known planet have additional massive planets orbiting them.
