Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah ive tried multple attempts of looking online for resources.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from the picture it would appear that "c" elongation is 0°

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes C elongation angle would be 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So C is done. For B, any quadrature (no matter eastern or western) is 90 degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No the picture you have a superior conjunction (attached file has a hypothetical superior planet in it). Dont worry about the picture in the right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do not have a background with this, so you can write that if your teacher mentions superior conjunction or superior opposition.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you have to plot it using the letters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Plot it ? Plot what where? I have to plot things on the picture?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Opposition is 180 degrees, so it should be near the earth.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which second problem?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know where to plot the opposition right? It is opposite to the conjunction.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! From B to earth to sun creates a 90 degree angle. west. From D to Earth to Sun creates a 120 degree angle east
