Review 1. Scale of Universe and Solar System 2. Celestial Sphere, our view of the sky (celestial poles, zenith, circumpolar, north star…) 3. Cause of the seasons (tilt, equinox, solstice, precession) 4. Phases of the Moon (synchronous orbit) 5. Solar/Lunar Eclipses (nodes, ecliptic) 6. Apparent Motion of the Planets (retrograde motion) 7. Kepler’s Laws (ellipse, foci, eccentricity, aphelion, perihelion, semimajor axis, P 2 =a 3 ) 8. Galileo’s Observations (discovery of Galilean moons, phases of Venus) 9.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
