Cami Kangleon The Solar System What's Moving and What's Not? Asteroids vs. Comets Cool Discoveries Thanks for Watching!!! The planets, stars, comets, and asteroids move. The only thing that doesn't move is the milky way. The planets orbit the sun, and the sun orbits the milky way. There are 2 things that differ between comets and asteroids: orbit and chemical composition. When asteroids go around the sun they normally stay in the same orbit, unlike comets which lengths may vary.Asteroids don't have an atmosphere but when comets go to the sun they create a thin temporary atmosphere. The coolest thing that I found out about space is that...
Every day there is a different view in the night sky
Things look different from spaceships
The atmosphere makes other things look different The Solar System By Cami Kangleon. Mrs. Wilken's 5th grade class of 2012-2013. Torrey Hills elementary. Comet Asteroid Similar vs. Different Solar Eclipse vs. Lunar Eclipse Eclipses are when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are lined up. A lunar eclipse is when Earth goes between the sun and moon. A solar eclipse is when the moon is sandwiched between the sun and Earth. What they both have in common are they are both the sun, moon, and Earth all lined up. The difference is the order they are in. Lunar Eclipse Solar Eclipse High Tide vs. Low Tide Tides are created by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun on Earth. High tide is when the tide is at its highest state. Low tide is when the tide is at its lowest state. What are the differences? High tide is well, higher. What is similar? They are both tides that are created by the sun and the moon. Moon movement vs. Earths Movement The moon moves around the Earth and the sun where Earth moves around its axis and the sun. The things that are similar are that they both rotate around the sun. The distance of Earth when it is spring and summer Summer: Earth is 152 million km from the sun
Spring: Earth is 76 million km from the sun New Moon vs. Full Moon During a new moon there is hardly any sunlight striking the moon. During a full moon there is a lot of sunlight hitting the moon. North Star vs. Seasons When the earth moves around it's orbit the distance from the north star (aka Polaris) looks different because of the different position that the earth is in. How objects look in space from different places Spaceships don't have an atmosphere in the way and they are close to the other object. From a spaceship you don't need to use a telescope because the objects are closer.
Earth's atmosphere and clouds don't let us have a clear view and other objects are farther away. If we wanted to see anything very clearly we would have to use a telescope.
