A Stellar Demonstrator
Ros, Rosa M.
Physics Education, v44 n4 p356-362 Jul 2009
The main purpose of the stellar demonstrator is to help explain the movement of stars. In particular, students have difficulties understanding why, if they are living in the Northern Hemisphere, they may observe starts in the Southern Hemisphere, or why circumpolar stars are not the same in different parts of Europe. Using the demonstrator, these questions and others have a simple answer. (Contains 1 table and 9 figures.)
