A Venusian would have a better view of earth retrograding for two reasons: 1. As the planet passes between us and the sun it would be in the day time sky. 2. Notice too that the dark side of the planet would be facing our direction for an observer on the day side of earth. This question has not been graded.

s not to scale...shadows would not extend that far in space would be looking away from the sun-located on the night side of Venus-and they would see the part of Earth in sunlight. An obse e day side of the red planet and Earth's night side (not illuminated by the sun) would be facing Mars. 1 / 1 point Information: Click here to view Phase Position Demonstrator (will open in a new window. An inner planet always has one half of itself facing the sun. As the demonstrator shows this planet, as seen through a telescope, goes through phases that are similar to the phases of the moon. Question: When an outer planet is observed through a telescope it: 1) shows phases in a sequence like the inner planet 2) shows phases in a sequence that is the reverse order of an inner planet 3) is nearly always in full phase 4) is only visible at periods when it retrogrades Use the following information to answer Questions 15 and 16 WEB PAGE Project Galileo (Rice University)

Select: Science-left column 0 / 1 point Who first applied for a patent for the telescope? When? Why was it denied? In October 1608, the States General (the national government) in The Hague discussed the patent applications first of Hans Lipperhey of Middelburg, and then of Jacob Metius of Alkmaar, on a device for "seeing faraway things as though nearby." It consisted of a convex and concave lens in a tube, and the combination magnified three or four times.[4] The gentlemen found the device too easy to copy to award the patent, but it voted a small award to Metius and employed Lipperhey to make several binocular versions, for which he was paid handsomely.

    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.
