At this site, students learn about the history of Earth imaging and the Landsat satellite program. They develop interpretation skills as they play a game that involves inferring the subjects of various Landsat images. This lesson will help students to be able to show understanding of the history and development of Earth sensing, describe Landsat and its role in modern Earth imaging, and use knowledge ...

In this activity, students explore how an observer's location will affect the appearance of stars and other objects in the sky. They discover that the distance between an observer and the object changes its appearance in size and brightness. During this activity, students will make predictions about the influence distance has on appearance of an object, explore the Inverse Square Law, investigate ... Full description.

While commonly referred to as 'shooting stars', meteors and meteor showers are, in fact, unrelated to stars. Instead, these streaks of light are the glow of interplanetary debris crashing into Earth's atmosphere. This animated video introduces students to shooting stars and the reasons behind annual meteor showers. Topics include the difference between sporadic meteors and meteor showers, how comets ...

If you observe clouds in a portion of the sky, you may notice that they are not static. Clouds are composed of tiny particles of water and are constantly changing and moving. This video lets viewers observe clouds forming, moving, and changing shape. The segment is one minute thirty-three seconds in length. A background essay and list of discussion questions are also provided. Full description.

Night and day are determined by the Sun's presence or absence in the sky. As Earth rotates, the portion of the planet that is illuminated by the Sun experiences day while the portion that faces away from the Sun experiences night. As observed from most locations on Earth, the Sun appears to rise in the east and set in the west every day. This video segment features time-lapse photography of a sunrise ... Full description.

The Moon, Earth's only natural satellite and one of the brightest objects in its sky, appears in the sky in many different shapes. Over the course of a month, the observed shapes result from the interaction of the Moon's orbit around the Earth and the sunlight reflected from it. This interactive resource explains the relationship between the Moon's orbit and its phases, and also explains how 'blue ... Full description.

In July 1991, the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth produced a total solar eclipse with a particularly long duration and a path that crossed easily accessible locations, including a major astronomical observatory in Hawaii. This video segment explains the mechanics of solar eclipses and shows the rare 1991 eclipse from the top of Mauna Kea. The segment is five minutes seven seconds in length. ... Full description.
