Move the view so that you see the edge on view of the backyard. Have it so the direction south is coming "out" of the screen and north is "back" into the screen (shown below).In the Star Controls Panel reset star trails. Be sure to have a star placed near the NCP. Start animation.

1 / 1 point Use the star pattern-Big Dipper (see selection menu in the far right panel-Star Controls) When the observer faces north and watches the star trails during the night, the stars move: a) in a clockwise direction b) in a counterclockwise direction Place your cursor on the grass of the observer's backyard. Move the view so that you see the edge on view of the backyard. Have it so the direction north is out of the screen and south is "back" into the screen. In the Star Controls Panel reset star trails. Start animation. 1 / 1 point Use the constellation Orion (see selection menu in the far right panel-Star Controls) When the observer faces south and watches the star trails during the night, the stars move: a) in a clockwise direction b) in a counterclockwise direction Quest ion 7 1 / 1 poin t How much time is there between when a star rises and when it sets? a) less than twelve hours b) about twelve hours c) more than twelve hours d) it depends on the star Question 1 / 1

8 point From your position at 45 degrees North latitude, you look straight north and see a star near the horizon. A little later you notice that it has shifted its position slightly. Which way did it move? a) to the right (east/upward) b) to the left (west/downward) Place your cursor on the grass of the observer's backyard. Move the view so that you see the edge on view of the backyard. Have it so the direction north is on the left side of the screen. To change the latitude of the observer use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard. As you change latitude observe the information shown in the Observer's Location panel in the lower left.

1 / 1 point As an observer travels away from the equator the NCP: a) moves away from the ground (the altitude of the NCP increases). b) moves towards the ground (the altitude of the NCP decreases). Question 10 1 / 1

point The further one travels from home: a) the bigger the observed changed in the altitude of the NCP. b) the smaller the observed change in the altitude of the NCP. c) there is no observed change in the altitude of the NCP. Question 11 1 / 1 point At the North Pole, latitude 90 degree, what is the altitude of Polaris (the NCP)? a) 0 degrees b) 45 degrees c) 90 degrees Question 12 1 / 1 point At the North Pole, what is the positional relationship of the celestial equator and the horizon? a) they are coincident-one and the same b) they are at an angle of 90 to each other Question 13 1 / 1 poin t At the North Pole, how do the stars at night move with respect to the horizon?

    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.
