Celestial Sphere with Analemma JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake and W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Celestial Sphere and Analemma JavaScript Model simulates the Two Sphere Universe theory of the Ancient Greeks. This theory supposes the stars to be fixed on the surface of a…

The Galileo's Moon Mountain Model illustrates the method used by Galileo to measure the height of a mountain on the Moon. Using his improved telescope design, Galileo was able to see…
Galileo Sunspots  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Galileo Sunspots Model illustrates the motion and changes in appearance of sunspots as they move across the disk of the Sun. Galileo's observation of the changing appearance…
