Astronomy Project Instructions Your Astronomy Project is to analyze a news article on a topic related to astronomy and write a short report on your findings. The first step is to choose a topic from the Approved Topics listed on Table 1 (next page). You will be writing a short report that summarizes the science behind your topic by using the Approved Resources listed in Table 2 (next page) for your research. Then you will analyze the article by answering some key questions. Follow the steps below to get started: 1. Choose your Project Topic from the Approved Topics listed in Table 1 2. Find a news article related to your Project Topic. This must be a news article from a reputable news website such as a newspaper, periodical, or local/national news affiliate and can be from any date within the past three years. This article should not be from a blog or from a purely scientific periodical such as Astronomy Magazine or NASA News, but a resource known for distributing news on more topics than just science. Some examples would be ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, Fox or the Washington Post, New York Times, or Forbes. 3. Email your Instructor both your Project Topic and a link to the news article you will be analyzing for approval. Everyone must choose a different article. 4. Read your article. Identify and list any scientific terms within it, preferably ones that you are not familiar with. You should have at least 4 scientific terms that you will be defining within the report. 5. Start your report, following the Report Outline below. Report Outline Your report should include the following 4 sections: 1. Scientific Terms List- This part gets you familiar with the scientific terms you identified in the article. Using any of the Approved Resources in Table 2, define and describe the scientific terms you identified in your article. This should follow a bulleted list format with no fewer than 4 terms. 2. Project Research – This part of the report introduces and describes the Project Topic. Using any of the Approved Resources in Table 2, you will research and report about the fundamental concepts behind your Project Topic. This section should be no less than 2 pages double spaced and include at least one informative picture or illustration. You can list your references informally as links or page numbers and the source. 3. Analysis of Article- After you have completed your research and scientific terms list, you should read the article again. Then conduct an analysis on the article by answering the following 4 questions. The article link and the questions should be copied into your report. Your response to each of the following questions should be at least a 5-sentence paragraph to completely answer the question. Q1: What information did the article include that agreed with the research you did on the article? Was there any information in the article that conflicted with your research? Q2: Do you feel like any parts of the article were misleading, exaggerated, or understated? If so what parts and why? If not, based on your research, why do you feel like it was well presented? Q3: Were all the scientific terms you identified and researched used properly in the article? Discuss why or why not and give examples. Q4: Overall, based on your research, did the article accurately discuss your Project Topic? Why or why not? What information, was it missing, if any? What information might have made the article clearer or more accurate? 4. Project Conclusion - Write a conclusion on what you learned from doing this project. It should include what you learned about the Project Topic through your research, what you learned from the article itself, and what you learned from the analysis of the article. This should be no less than ½ a page double spaced.

Scientific Terms List



Totality- Totality can be defined as a state whereby light from the Sun is totally blocked
by the moon during an eclipse.



Umbral- Relating to, or formed at the Umbra. Umbra is a Latin word used to denote the
darkest, and the innermost part of a shadow, during an eclipse.



Astrophysicist- A person who has studied astrophysics, and is highly versed in the same.



Celestial- Relating to or positioned in the outer space, or sky. Something that exists
outside the earth’s atmosphere.

Solar eclipses are interesting common occurrences, especially in the 21st century.

According to Wikipedia (n.d), a solar eclipse results when the earth, moon and sun align,
whether partially or perfectly. During the solar eclipse, the moon gets into the path between the
earth and the sun, thus blocking the Sun’s light from reaching part of the earth. A solar eclipse
can be total or partial, depending on the extent to which the sun’s light is blocked by the moon
from reaching the earth. Partial solar eclipse results when the moon, sun and earth fail to
perfectly align, hence only a portion of the moon’s shadow (penumbra) is experienced on earth.
On the contrary, a total solar eclipse results when the three falls on a straight path, and the
Moon’s Umbra is cast on the earth. During a total solar eclipse, the moon blocks sun’s light from
reaching a certain point on earth, hence total darkness is experienced for a few minutes.
The fundamental concept behind solar eclipse is that the moon, earth and sun are
constantly rotating on their own axis. The three bodies have diff...
