Question details

Imagine you are marooned on an isolated deserted island where there are no distractions like television, movies, the internet (no Facebook!), and you have nothing to do except eat, sleep, and look around at nature. As you look up at the dark night sky from one night to the next, over time you observe and record patterns in the motion of astronomical objects. From your reading in the textbook and from previous knowledge of the motion of the Earth, the Moon, the other planets, and other stars, describe some of the patterns of motion you might record over the course of a couple of years of careful observation until you are rescued. Be specific, and feel free to have fun with this assignment...let your creative side come out.
