I’m studying for my Science class and need an explanation.
This lab will give you a little bit of a feeling for how many stars are visible in the night sky. It’s very easy (especially if you’re living in a bright city like Los Angeles) to think that there’s very few stars up there – this lab will help you estimate how many visible stars are up there, based on where you live!
For this lab, you’ll need to print out theworksheet (attached below) – this is a pretty straightforward exercise, but there is a little bit of math that’s involved – so be careful about that. Make sure that the answer that you calculate makes sense!
To submit your lab, simply type in your answers to the Word document.
This lab will give you an overview of some of the different objects that are out there in the sky – you’ll get to find several different examples of them.
Here is a link to the Scavenger Hunt (Links to an external site.) assignment on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey page (Links to an external site.).
Please read through the webpages, and try the different activities. Submit the Scavenger Hunt Worksheet (Links to an external site.) below.
Good luck, and have fun!
