ASTRONOMY 1101 NAME Homework #1 Due in class Thursday 26 January as a hardcopy, or due by 11:55PM on that day if you do this on-line with Moodle. Often, the homework problems will involve some independent thinking and work that is not just look- up-the-answer-in-the-book. I encourage you to work on this homework with your friends, but what you turn in must be in your own words. You can hand the homework in up to a week late (i.e., when the solutions come out) for half credit. #1. Astronomy Picture of the Day ( http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/ or see the link on our classes Moodle page)is a web site of astronomy pictures. Its tagline is "Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer." The pictures are beautiful and it alerts me to the latest astronomical news and discoveries; so I check it every day. APOD gets about 500,000 hits per day. For this question, I want you to look at APOD for the last month. Pick out any one APOD picture that you think is particularly beautiful or interesting. Tell me the date of the APOD and the title of the picture. I'd also be interested in why you selected that particular image. #2.
