Julia Machuga Archaeoastronomy Final Study Guide 5/1/16  In general, objects rise in the east & set in the west, because the Earth rotates (Sun, moon, stars)  Stars near the north & south poles may not rise or set because they are circumpolar  All stars are circumpolar at the North and South poles  Stars near the North Celestial pole are always visible from Fort Worth  1 solar day = 24 hours  1 sidereal day = slightly shorter than a solar day  It takes a full month for a new zodiac constellation to be high in the sky  As Earth moves around the sun, its tilt affects how high the sum moves in the sky throughout the year  The Earth’s tilt causes the arctic circle… longer days and shorter nights at the poles  In summer, the sun is higher ahead  In winter, the sun is lower  Crescent moon: sliver  Waxing moon: becoming more lit up  Waning moon: becoming darker  From when the moon crosses the meridian, add 6 hours to find the time it sets and subtract 6 hours to find the time it rises Practice Questions:  At the North Pole, you see a star directly overhead (zenith). In what direction will you have to look to see this star set? This star will never set  At TCU, you see a star directly overhead (zenith). In what direction will you have to look to see this star set? Northwest  If the full moon crosses the meridian at midnight, it roses 6 hours earlier  How much time is there between when a star rises & sets? Depends on the star  What time does the third quarter moon cross the meridian? 6 am (and it rises at midnight)
