Astronomical Misconceptions
Barrier, Regina M.
Physics Teacher, v48 n5 p319-321 May 2010
Do you think that the Moon does not rotate? Do you think that the phases of the Moon are created by the Earth's shadow? Do you think that the seasons are a result of the Earth's distance from the Sun? If you answered "yes" to any of these, then you are one of many who possess misconceptions about astronomy.
