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…

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…
Gnomon Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Gnomon model simulates the shadow cast by a gnomon (the part of a sundial that casts the shadow) over the course of a day for any day of the year and any latitude on Earth.…
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…
Galileo's Sunspots JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Galileo Sunspots JS 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…
Earth Phases JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake and M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Earth Phases JS Model illustrates the changing regions of darkness and light on the Earth over the course of a single day, or over the course of an entire year. The image shows…
Eratosthenes JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake and M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Eratosthenes JS model displays the shadows cast by two gnomons (sticks) at different locations on Earth. For one gnomon, Sun is directly overhead (as would be the case if the…
