Stellar, solar, and lunar demonstrators Rosa M. Ros, Francis Berthomieu International Astronomical Union Comm C1 Technical University of Catalonia, Spain CLEA, France Goals

Understand the apparent motions of stars as seen from different latitudes. Understand the apparent motions of

the Sun as seen from different latitudes. Understand the Moons movement and shapes as seen from different latitudes Stellar demonstrator for showing:

Paths of the stars in the sky

Circumpolar stars, stars that rise and set, stars that dont rise or set Travel anywhere if you know the latitude (You can build a simulator for each location) circumpolar / stars that rise & set/stars that

Construction

All explanations are given for construction depending on: Northern hemisphere Southern hemisphere

Building instructions step 1 Make a photocopy on heavy-weight paper Cut both pieces (big one and small one) along the continuous

line Remove the black areas Building instructions step 2

Cut a small notch above the N (northern hemisphere) in the horizon disk or the S (southern hemisphere) in the horizon disk Glue the North-East quadrant (northern hemisphere) of the horizon disk onto the grey quadrant of the main piece. The W

point must match up with latitude 90, or the South-West quadrant (southern hemisphere) of the horizon disk onto the grey quadrant of the main piece. The E point must match up with latitude 90. Try to be careful in this operation because the

Building instructions step 3 Fit the incision N (northern hemisphere) in the quadrant over the degrees of latitude or the incision S (southern hemisphere) in the quadrant over

the degrees of latitude Hold the horizon disk perpendicular to the latitude degrees Begin to use by setting it for any desired latitude Tilts of stellar

Is this picture correct? The sunrise is always due East and the sunset is always due West. Is this correct?

summe r Polar summer and winter At the poles, the sun is above the horizon for half a year

and below it for half a year. Midnight Sun The Sun goes down until it passes the meridian and then begins to rise rather than set below the horizon

Seasons at the equator The solar path is always almost perpendicular to the horizon and its length is almost the same throughout the year

Sun at the zenith At solar noon, the shadow is on your feet. Lunar demonstrator Why the Moon smiles

in some places? Why yes or no. Lunar demonstrator XXL demonstrators
