Grace Schmitmeyer Questions based on the Astronomy book: Chapter 1 1. The more light a telescope obtains, the easier it is to see distant images a. True b. False 2. What types of modern telescopes allow astronomers to see farther and clearer images? a. Hubble Space Telescope b. Very Large Telescope in Chile c. Space Telescope d. A & B e. None of the above 3. Approximately how long does it take the moon to circle the Earth? a. 10 days b. 1 month c. 6 months d. 1 year e. 10 years 4. How long does it take light to travel between the moon and Earth? a. 1.3 seconds b. 1.3 minutes c. 2.5 seconds d. 2.5 minutes e. None of the above 5. The sun revolves around the Earth a. True b. False

Teresa Homan The seasons are the result of how far away the Earth is from the Sun. -False The seasons are the result of the 23.5-degree tilt of the Earth’s axis -True The hours of daylight increase in the summer and decrease in the winter -True The hours of daylight decrease in the summer and increase in the winter -False The Arctic circle has a 24-hour night. -True The rotation period of Earth with respect to the Sun is called the solar day. -True The rotation period of Earth with respect to the stars is called the sidereal day. -True A solar day is shorter than a sidereal day. -False The solar day s about 4 minutes longer than the sidereal day. -True Because our clocks are set to solar time, stars ride 4 minutes later each day. -False

For my first part of this project I did 10 true/false questions over sections 4.2 and 4.3, the seasons and keeping time.
