Sidereal and Solar Day  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The Sidereal and Solar Day model illustrates the difference between the sidereal and solar day. The planets of our solar system both orbit around Sun and rotate on their axis. These…
Kepler System Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The Kepler System model simulates Kepler's final theory of planetary motion. In this theory the planets orbit in ellipses with Sun at one focus (Kepler's First law). These elliptical…
Local Coordinates Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Local Coordinates model displays the position of a star in local (Altitude/Azimuth) coordinates. The horizon is shown along with the four cardinal directions (N, E, S, and W).…
Equatorial Coordinates Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Equatorial Coordinates model displays the position of a star in equatorial (Right Ascension/Declination --- RA/Dec) coordinates. The horizon is shown along with the four cardinal…
Solar and Lunar Eclipse Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Solar and Lunar Eclipse model simulates the occurrences of solar and lunar eclipses. Moon's orbital inclination of 5.145 degrees with respect to the ecliptic (the Earth-Sun…
Newton’s Mountain Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The EJS Newton’s Mountain model illustrates the motion of a projectile launched from the top of a VERY tall mountain on Earth. The diagram shown in the simulation is taken from…
Earth Orbit Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Earth Orbit model illustrates the Copernican theory of Earth's orbit around the sun. The top window shows a view from outside the celestial sphere. The simulation shows the…
Equinox Precession Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Equinox Precession model illustrates the Copernican theory of Earth's orbit around the sun. The top window shows a view from outside the celestial sphere. The simulation…
Celestial Globe Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Ejs Celestial Globe model simulates the Two Sphere Universe theory of the Ancient Greeks. This theory supposes the stars to be fixed on the surface of a Celestial Sphere, with…
Phases of Venus Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Venus Phases model illustrates the phases of Venus as predicted by either the Copernican system of the Ptolemaic system (the Copernican system is the default). One window…
