PROBLEM: Can a celestial
globe provide scientific information on stars?
PROCEDURE: Follow the
directions for reading the celestial globe. In the chart below, you are
given the name of a star and a month when it can be seen. Find the star’s
location (declination and ascension). For each star, determine the type of
star and write it below. Include the constellation that you find each star
in. Record any other information about the star that you might find.
Are certain stars located only in the
northern hemisphere and others only in the southern? Why?
