Lunar Eclipse Lab
Title: Phases and Eclipses of the Moon
Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate the different phases of the moon during its revolution around the earth and also to display solar and lunar eclipses.
Hypothesis: I think that by following the procedure, I will successfully complete this lab in showing the phases of the moon throughout its revolution and the solar and lunar eclipses because I am moving the moon correctly.
Independent variable: Movement of the moon
Dependent variable: Phases of the moon and the lunar and solar eclipses
3. Model Earth
6. Piece of string cut to 80 in. long and marked every 10 inches
7. Light equip with working bulb (acts as the Sun)
8. Model of the Moon
9. 3 people all together to demonstrate moon phases and eclipses
Procedure (Phases of the Moon):
1. Gather materials.
2. Take the string and fold it in half so that it equals 160 inches.
3. Mark the string every 20 inches (this should equal to 8 marks around the strings).
4. Place the string on the floor with tape making a circle.
5. Choose 3 people to represent the Earth, Sun and Moon.
6. Place the person representing the Earth on the outside of the circle, the person holding the Moon on the circle (making sure they are holding the moon in their arm, away from their body), and the person representing the Sun on the other side (approximately 3 feet) of the string. When finished the persons should be in the following order: 1.
Sun 2. Moon 3. Earth.
7. Turn the light on making sure it is facing the Moon and the Earth.
8. The person holding the Moon should begin at the first point marked on the circle and continue to, (with their arm), move the Moon around the Earth completely around the circle.
9. Observe the phases of the Moon.
Procedure (Solar Eclipse):
1.The 3rd person is now needed to hold up the Moon in between the Earth and the sun (making sure they, as a body, are not blocking the "sun\'s" light).
2. One other person is need to stand on the outside of the Moon and the
3. A the remaining person will hold up the light (which represents the
Sun. When finished the order of the 3 persons standing should be as follows: 1. SUN
2. MOON 3. EARTH.
4. A solar eclipse should be formed. Therefor a small dot of darkness should appear on the Earth because the Moon\'s penumbra is touching the Earth.
Procedure (Lunar Eclipse):

The Fate of The BlindThe Fate of The Blind There\'s a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will. These words from Hamlet are echoed, even more pessimistically, in Shakespeare\'s later play, The Tragedy of King Lear where Gloucester says: Like flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods, they kill us for their sport. In Lear, the characters are subjected to the various tragedies of life over and over again. An abundance of cyclic imagery in Lear shows that good people are abused and wronged regardles

King LearKing Lear Many themes are evident in King Lear, but perhaps one of the most prevalent relates to the theme of justice. Shakespeare has developed a tragedy that allows us to see man\'s decent into chaos. Although Lear is perceived as a man more sinned against than sinning (p.62), the treatment of the main characters encourages the reader to reflect on the presence or lack of justice in this world. The characters also vary in their inclination to view the world from either a fatalistic or morali

The StonehengeThe Stonehenge The Stonehenge has been one big mystery to the world. No one knows how it got there, who built it, or why it was built. All we can do is wonder. The Stonehenge was built and reconstructed many times starting in about 3200 BC to about 1650 BC. The stones that were used to construct the monument weighed anywhere from 25 to 50 tons apiece, in some cases the stones had to be dragged to the plain from up to 20 miles away.

Fools In _King Lear_Fools In _King Lear_ Erik Irre April 26, 1999 Fools and Kings Shakespeare\'s dynamic use of irony in King Lear aids the microcosmic illustration of not only 16th century Britain, but of all times and places. The theme that best develops this illustration is the discussion of fools and their foolishness. This discussion allows Shakespeare not only to portray human nature, but also to elicit a sort of Socratic introspection into the nature of society\'s own ignorance as well. One type of fool that
Hesiod and VirgilHesiod and Virgil To work the land as a form of living and to gain sustenance as a result of this work, this is the issue addressed by both Hesiod in Works and Days and Virgil in The Georgics. However, while each poet advocates the same lifestyle, each poet\'s true meaning lies in what they hope to achieve through an agricultural existence. For Hesiod, a bucolic existence is a means of attaining plentiful stores, making life easier both socially and physically, as well as developing a closeness
John Proctor's Role In The CrucibleJohn Proctor\'s Role In The Crucible It was with ardent horror that the prehistoric man first witnessed a solar eclipse---the sun swallowed by the predator moon until all light ceased and darkness fell on to the land. We, the more enlightened descendants, have also suffered eclipses. One such eclipse was the darkness of evil that fell upon Salem in 1692, when many men and women were accused of compacting with the Devil. These charges were what snowballed into the huge misfortune known as the “Sa
“The Father of Modern Astronomy”“The Father of Modern Astronomy” JMJ April 28, 2004 Physics Period 5 From the first time children are introduced to astronomy in second grade, they are told that the sun is the center of the solar system. This was not always the case. For centuries, civilization believed the whole universe revolved around the earth. This was easy to believe since all the astral bodies seemed to make an arch across the sky, and, in relativity to the people on the ground, it was the sky that was moving, and not th

Romeo and Juliet is undoubtedly the most famous love story in English literary history; love is the play’s dominant and most important theme.

PtolemyPtolemy Introduction In ancient times there were many great ideas which began to shape the way man perceived his environment. However, there were few minds who were able to put all of these ideas together. One of these minds belonged to Claudius Ptolemy, or just Ptolemy as he is commonly referred to. We know almost nothing of the chronology of Ptolemy\'s life, and we don\'t even know his birth or death dates. We do know, though, about his ideas in several fields, which include geography, astrono
Christopher giasi Christopher giasi IS THE UNIVERSE BOUNDED AS ARISTOTLE MAINTAINS OR IS IT INFINITE ? Is the earth finite in physical extension or infinite?
