PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY Our Place in Space Big Bang Theory: The Universe emerged from a singular, enormously dense mass about 14 billion years ago. Evidence: 1) the most distant star clusters are moving away from us at a greater speed than those that are closer, and 2) amount of cosmic microwave background radiation is uniform throughout the universe – leftover energy from an early period of rapid expansion Galaxy: largest definable unit within the universe (ex. Milky Way is our galaxy) Oblate spheroid: The Earth is not a perfect circle. It bulges at the Equator, and flattened at the poles The bulge is caused by a centrifugal force Sun angle: angle at which the sun’s rays strike Earth’s surface Relatively high at low latitudes, more intense solar radiation Subsolar point: Point on Earth where the sun angle is 90 degrees; solar radiation strikes the surface more directly. Rays are perpendicular to the surface. Migrates between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn over a course of a year. Perihelion: Point of the Earth’s orbit where the Earth to Sun distance is about 147 million km. Aphelion: Point where Earth is farthest from the Sun about 152 million km. Axis: an imaginary line. Extends through the center of Earth from pole to pole. It’s tilted at 23.5 degrees. Earth rotates on its axis, resulting in day/night cycle. Circle of Illumination: The boundary between day and night. During the rotation, one half of the earth is illuminated International Date Line: The begi
