Earth is a member of a solar system that orbits the sun. Our solar system is a member of the Milky Way, which is one of forty galaxies in the Local Group. The Local Group is a small fraction of the Local Supercluster.

Finally, the Local Supercluster makes up a minor portion of the entire universe In summation, the universe is an endless pit of stars, and the sun, which is the biggest star in our solar system, is only one of over 100 billion stars in the Milky Way. To try to count all of the stars in earth’s sky would be a daunting task, but like Galileo and many other astronomers before our time, we can use everyday tools and simple calculations to make a pretty close guess.

Using a paper towel roll and two telescopes, we took 25 different star counts to get an accurate depiction of the number of stars covering our sky In the Astronomy (CLEA) project at the Department of Physics, Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, PA . order to describe the location, you can describe where it is .

The ExperimentTo collect data with the naked eye, a paper towel roll was used. We looked at different parts of the sky and counted the number of stars that we could see through the opening of the roll.

To get a realistic image of the sky You've reached the end of this preview Make sure you record what you do as you do it, so that the procedure section of your report accurately and completely reflects what you did. Some helpful hints .

TERMSpring '14 What students are sayingAs 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. Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern 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. Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern 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 Astronomy Lab. An Interactive Qualifying Project Report get familiarized in experimental astrophysics without requirement in prior advanced knowledge of..
