An opposition is always 180 degrees to the Sun.

I saw your attached files.
andrewv
  • andrewv
from the picture it would appear that "c" elongation is 0°
andrewv
  • andrewv
B elongation appears to be West 90°
andrewv
  • andrewv
although i cant be entirely sure..
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes C elongation angle would be 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
It would be called a conjunction.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So C is done. For B, any quadrature (no matter eastern or western) is 90 degrees.
andrewv
  • andrewv
Just conjunction?
andrewv
  • andrewv
not superior conjunction or inferior conjunction?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No the picture you have a superior conjunction (attached file has a hypothetical superior planet in it). Dont worry about the picture in the right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I do not have a background with this, so you can write that if your teacher mentions superior conjunction or superior opposition.
andrewv
  • andrewv
I understand. Its all good. you helped me even a little and i truly appreciate it (:
anonymous
  • anonymous
Aw, thank you!

Did you finish filling everything in the box?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now you have to plot it using the letters.
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is the harder part.
andrewv
  • andrewv
Plot it ? Plot what where? I have to plot things on the picture?
andrewv
  • andrewv
sorry if i sound like a total idiot :/ I didnt expect this lab class to be so difficult and the teacher isnt so great himself...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea it says complete any letter labels.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No problem.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Opposition is 180 degrees, so it should be near the earth.
andrewv
  • andrewv
Well that sucks...I have a second problem where i already filled out the box but i suppose i need to plot on that one as well...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which second problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know where to plot the opposition right? It is opposite to the conjunction.
andrewv
  • andrewv
I got it (:
andrewv

anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes! From B to earth to sun creates a 90 degree angle. west. From D to Earth to Sun creates a 120 degree angle east

Nice job!

Thank you for your help (:

No problem!
