The mission takes positions of moon for three consecutive nights, all taken at the same time, at 7:30 pm. No sketches have been made but the recordings of the place and the degrees have been recorded. Location of Observations: _The moon was located at Dover City in Delaware, along the West Loockerman Street located in downtown Dover. Observation (1) Date ____22________________Time _7:30______ pm Horizontal angular size _____15______ degrees Vertical angular measurement ___28________ degrees Appearance _____________New Moon, while acting as a waxing crescent Observation (2) Date ______23____________Time __7:30________ pm Horizontal angular measurement ___15______ degrees Vertical angular measurement  _____40______ degrees Appearance ____________Still a New Moon, the moon additionally appeared as a waxing crescent Observation (3) Date ____24________________Time __________ pm Horizontal

  • angular measurement _15__________ degrees
  • Vertical angular measurement ___52________ degrees
  • Appearance _____New Moon moving to the first quarter moon (appearing as a waxing crescent)

1. Describe any changes in the Moon's appearance from observation to observation.

The moon appeared to be slightly changing its appearance from new moon to quarter moon. It was appearing as a waxing crescent for the three days observed through the crescent kept increasing. The lighting on 22 was dimmer (probably at 10%) compared to 23rd with 17% and 24th November with 25% lighting showing an increasing in lighting from the waxing crescent moon.

2. Describe any change in Moon's position in the sky from observation to observation.

The moon’s position in the sky also kept changing but not a significant change. The intensity of illumination could be estimated to be changing. The position could be slightly be observed at 0° 29ʹ with slight changes around 0°.

3. Using the methods laid out above, what is your estimate of the daily amount of angular change in the Moon's position?

From the observed calculations, the estimated daily angular change for the vertical position was observed as follows;

Day 2 – Day 1 = (40-28) = 12

Day 3- Day 2 = (51-10) = 11

To get the average, (12+11)/2 = 11.5°

There was no observed horizontal angular changes as the reference point from the horizon kept constant.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
