Solar Eclipses!

Today we are learning about solar eclipses like the one happening tonight at 7:30 25/11/11. A solar eclipse is when the moon crosses the suns rays causing it to get dark. A lunar eclipse is when the suns rays hit the earth, pass around it and hit the moon which gives it a red colour.

Stars and Galaxies.

We are learning to explain what stars and galaxies are .

1)The sun is 150 million km from the earth.

2)The sun is about 1.6 billion years old.

3)The sun spins around once every 27.4 days.

4)The surface of the sun is called photo-sphere.

5)The core of the sun is made of a gas called helium.

6)Sun spots are cooler areas which look like dark blotches

7)Around the sun is a layer of gas which is called the chromo-sphere

8)plumes of hot gas called prominences shoot thousands of kilometers.

9)the sun is fer to bright for our eyes. never look directly at it, even when wearing sunglasses


A star is giant glowing ball of gas. Stars a powered by nuclear reaction.

Space: Seasons/Day&Night

We are learning why we have seasons and day and night. It is so cool!

on earth 1 day is 24 hours long

on Jupiter is 9 hours and 55 minuets

1 day is the time taken for the planet to rotate a full 360* on its axis.

Night time is when that part of the planet is in shadow (out of the sun’s light).

Day time is when that part of the planet is in the path of the sun’s light rays.

The length of the days and nights depends on the seasons.

There are different seasons because of how the earth is on a slight tilt of 23.5*. Winter will be cold and short days, and summer will be long and warm days.z
