Section 1 earth in space
#1 How does Earth move in space
Earth moves in space by, Rotation and revolution. Rotation is the Earth on its axis. Revolution is the movement of one object around another object. When this happens it causes the Earth to have night and day. Earth also revolves around the sun, it takes 365 days to make one full rotation around the sun.
#2 what causes the cycles of seasons on Earth
Sunlight hits the most direct at the equator, or the invisible line in the middle of the earth. Earth has seasons because its axis is tilted as it revolves around the sun. As earth revolves around the sun , the north end axis is tilted away from the sun one part of the year and the other is pointed towards it.
Section 2 questions
1 A. Every object in the universe attracts every other object.l b. weight and mass c.the amount of gravity would probably increase. 2. A Gravity, and Inertia. B. Because gravity pulls on it while inertia keeps it moving ahead. c. It would drift off into space because it would loose gravity and, inertia.
Section 2 Gravity and Motion
How the Moon effects Earths tides
As the earth spins on its axis, ocean water is kept at equal levels around the planet by gravity pulling inward and the centrifugal force (moving or tending to move away from its center) pushing outward. The Moon's gravitational forces are strong enough to interrupt this balance by accelerating the water towards the Moon. This causes the water to bulge.As the Moon orbits our planet and as the Earth rotates, the bulge also moves. The areas of the Earth where the bulging occurs get high tide, and the other areas are get a low tide.
Eclipses of the Moon
The Moons orbit around Earth is slightly tilted, Since it is tilted most months, the Moon revolves around Earth without moving into Earths shadows or the Moons shadows hitting Earth. When the moons shadow hits Earth or Earths shadow hits the moon, a eclipse is born. Different types of eclipses are, a Lunar eclipse, and a solar eclipse. A lunar Eclipse has three different types, a partial, total, and penumbral. There are four different types of Solar Eclipses, Annular eclipse, Total eclipse, Hybrid eclipse, and a Partial Solar eclipse.
Section 3 questions
1 A. Its surface reflects light from the sun. B.The positioning of the moon. c. The moon is between the sun and Earth the sun reflects on the side towards the moon, and the other side has no light reflecting on it. 2. A When an object in space comes between a third object. B. A solar eclipse is a eclipse the sun obscured by the moon. A lunar eclipse is an eclipse an eclipse in which the moon appears darkened as it passes into the earth's shadow. C. They cant both be obscured by the sun, and appear darkened as it passes into earths shadow. 3. A .The positioning of the moon, and the moons gravitational forces.
What a total solar eclipse is.
Section 4 Earths Moon
#1 The moons surface
Some feature's that are found on the moon are maria, marias are dark, flat areas on the moons surface. there are also a lot of craters because the moon has very little atmosphere and cant keep meteorites from hitting them, like the Earth can. High lands are the light colored features that cover most of the moons surface.
July 16th 1969 at the Kennedy space center, Apollo 11 took off to the Moon.
