Dr Hoselton's Physics Pages

PLEASE NOTE: This page is undergoing significant changes as I switch to a new textbook. Starting in the fall of 2006, I will be using the sixth edition of Giancoli's PHYSICS. That necessitates radical changes to the section marked "Lesson Notes for Physics." Overall re-organization of this web site is also underway.

  • This page loads slowly because of decorative graphics associated with the lab section.
    To shorten loading time, interrupt the download by hitting the red STOP button on the
    IE toolbar. The simple graphics are not essential for successfully using the information
    on this page.

    You can also speed up loading of every page by changing the way IE checks for content
    on web pages. You can set it to look for changes only once per IE session. Then, after
    you've loaded a page once in a session, it will load more quickly from a copy on your
    hard disk. You can still check for updates at any time by clicking the Refresh button
    on the IE toolbar.

    From the main menu in IE 6 click on Tools, then on Internet Options. Under the
    General tab click Settings and then click the radio button labeled Automatically.

    Each horizontal division above represents 10-degrees on the sky or 40 minutes in time. To find out which, if any, planets are currently due south of you (for northern hemisphere residents) follow these steps. Find the Sun symbol. The Sun will be directly south at local high noon. If the time is before noon, count the number of 40-minute periods until noon and move that many divisions to the right of the Sun sign on the sky chart. If the time is after noon, count the number of 40-minute periods since noon and move that many divisions to the left of the Sun sign on the sky shart.

    Some planets are visible during the day, Venus and Mars, are possible. Some have reported seeing Mercury, but it is awfully close to the Sun and eye injuries are possible anytime you view the sky while the Sun is still visible. On the other hand, the Moon, which is easy to see during the daylight, is seldom noticed. With a little effort you can be one of the few to see a planet during the day. Try Venus when it is at its maximum distance from the Sun. The next date for the maximum elongation of Venus is November 3, 2005. On that date, Venus will be about 45-degrees East of the Sun. So, at about 3pm to 4pm local time it should be nearly due south and as high in the sky as the Sun was at noon. (March 25, 2006, June 9 and October 28, 2007)

    All the planets shown here are visible on a clear night when they are far enough away from the Sun. Planets close to the Sun and to the right can be seen above the eastern horizon just before sunrise. Those close to the Sun and to the left can be seen above the western horizon just after sunset. Objects 18 divisions left or right of the Sun will be due south at midnight.
