Using the four steps for adjusting the planets' positions on the charts for any date, complete question 17. 17. Determine the positions of the planets for March 31, 200d. After calculating the number of days and years that have elapsed since the charts were drawn and entering your results below, complete Table 1 by listing the new location of each planet in degrees on the reference circle. Also, determine in which constellation the planet is located when viewed from Earth on the specified date and record your answer in Table 1. (a) Date of new positions of the planets: March 31, 2006 (b) Number of elapsed years since December 31, 1957 = 48 .25 years (c) Number of elapsed days since December 31, 1957 = 17,622 days IN Table 1. Planet positions on today's date (or the date specified by your instructor). Use this date: March 31, 2006. Sight from Sun Sight from Earth Through Planet Through Planet Planet Elapsed days / Period* Leftover x Planet Period** Location in Degrees In the Constellation Mercury 200 orbits 50 days (d) 298 Aquarius Venus 51 orbits 36.72 days 159 () Gemini Earth 48 orbits 12 days (f) 191 (1 ) * * * fires Mars 25 orbits 16.25 days ( 8 ) 232 (m) Scorpius Jupiter orbits 272 years (h ) 279 Saturn orbits . 6377 years ") 265 10 ) ScarpiVS *Use orbital period of planet obtained from appendix table in textbook. If necessary, convert years to days using 365.25 days/year. For example, Mercury's period is 0.2409 y x 365.25 d/y = 87.9887 days, which rounds to 88.0 days. *The "leftover" will be the decimal portion of the number calculated in column 2. Multiply this decimal times the orbital period to get the number of days or years for column 3. Mark that spot on the planet's wheel and continue. **To determine the constellation that Earth appears in, one has to look for the constellation that is behind the Earth on the specific date used (part a).
