Did you get the Key Ideas from the Motion
Lecture Tutorial?
4
Imagine you are located in the Northern
Hemisphere and see a star directly
overhead (zenith). In what direction will you
have to look to see this star set?
  • A) southwest
  • B) west

So now we understand nightly motion. How about

10 PM this same star will be
A) slightly higher in the sky. B) at the same
height as before. C) below your horizon. D)
setting on your western horizon.

Astrology The belief that the positions of the
stars and planets as seen from Earth impact human
events.
These weekly and monthly changes lead to ...
Science or Pseudoscience?
