Transcript of science project..

Introduction
good evening , in this prezi i am going to you peoples my project what i chose for this project and why....SO LETS GET STARTED!!

Earth, Moon, and Sun
lunar and solar eclipses: a solar eclipse, is when the sun, moon, and earth are all alined and the moon gradually covers the sun. when on earth you would see the a dark circle going over the sun. When the moon has fully covered up the sun, it is what we call totality, or you could just say a lit up circle. A lunar eclipse is when the sun, earth, then moon are all alined, and the moon goes into earths shadow. thats when the redish reflection from the sun is made and the moon has a redish tint.
the difference between a total and parshial eclipse, is that a total is a full circle where you can see the actual bright circle. a parshial eclipse is an eclipse half way through, so on a solar eclipse you would see half the sun and moon.
The next solar eclipse will occur on April 29, 2017
The next Lunar eclipse will occur on April 15, 2015
how to safely see a solar eclipse: to see a solar eclipse you must have special goggles, glasses, or a telescope because after totality the moon moves out of the way and the bright sun can burn your eyes.

planets and their orbit
what keeps the planets in their orbit?
planets stay in place because of the gravitational pull of the sun keeping them all in place and spinning.
comets, asteroids, and meteors
N.A.S.A mission
Neptune
Neptune is the 8th planet from the sun and has 13 moons and is 4,503,000,000 km away from the sun. Neptune is the 4th largest planet by dimeter and the 3rd largest by mass in the solar system. Neptune out of all the planets has the most density. A day on Neptune is short since it spins much faster than Earth., a day is 16 hours 6 minutes 36 seconds long. A year is 164.8 earth years. you couldn't actually land on neptune because neptune isnt a solid planet so if you tried to land you would just sink deeper and deeper into the planet. so you couldnt explore neptune. oh and yes neptune has seasons which lasts for 40 earth years!!
comet: my comet is called comet west, this comet is made up of ice,dust,and sublime. when you see a comet in the sky and you notice the trail behind the comet that is called a dust tail. my comet has a VERY long orbital period; 557,930 years! this comet was last seen over in 550,000 B.C!
Asteroid: the asteroid i chose was the Vesta Asteroid. the Vesta asteroid is just made up of space rocks. the orbital period of the Vesta Asteroid is 1,325 days. So we could be seeing this asteroid soon.

december's moon phases for the week of the december 9th -13th. the moon phases start from the 3rd quarter continuing on to waxing gibbous.
Star
Andromeda Galaxy
webites i used
my mission i chose was the apollo 12 mission. this mission was made to go to the moon and collect samples, surveys, and the capabilities the moon has. The astronauts used many tools to take these samples back to Earth. these astronauts used: tongs, scoops, rakes, hammers, core tubes, and electric drills. The apollo 12 mission was actually very simialr to the apollo 11 mission its just that, in the apollo 12 mission the space craft had to fly much higher toward the equator. mission date (1967).
the Andromeda Glaxy is a Spiral galaxy it is 2.5 million light years away from the milky way and has 1 billion stars!! our galaxy is actualy the same as the andromeda galaxy . the andromeda galaxy is a spiral barred Galaxy kind of similar to the galaxy we have, the milky way!!
the star I chose was the Rigel Star. The Rigel Star is actualy the brightest star in the constilation of orion. Rigel Star is light blue and, you would think since it's blue it would be cold....well its actually super hot!! the Rigels star surface temperature is 11,000 K! The rigels Star distance from earth is 772.9 light years!!

conclusion

so as you can see, the tide levels are in sort of like a patteren, to where its a high tide and a low tide each day theese are bascily spring tides, because they are at their point.
fact: so, actually while the astronauts were on their
mission they also had to go and retrive
some of the remainings from the surveyor |||
which landed on April 20, 1967
fact: if it weren't for the sun we
wouldn't have a solar system, or a moon, or
anything!! we would just be a desertred planet just
there awkwardly by itself.
mid term
for my conclusion, i had found out or learned that the Andromeda Galaxy has a very similar galaxy to ours. and that if not for our sun we would be a very awkward planet in the middle of nowhere.... just kind of sitting there being lame.


FINISHED!!
