Solar and Lunar Demonstrators
Ros, Rosa M.
Physics Education, v44 n4 p345-355 Jul 2009
By means of a simple device, made by students themselves, the movements of the Sun and the Moon can be studied at different latitudes. Using this device, it is easy to explain phenomena such as the midnight Sun, zenith pass and why the Moon "smiles". In this article, we show various photos of the Sun's movements, alongside their simulations on the solar demonstrator. (Contains 20 figures.)
