Extragalactic astronomy : the universe beyond our galaxy by Kenneth C Jacobs( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is part of an American Astronomical Society curriculum project designed to provide teaching materials to teachers of secondary school chemistry, physics, and earth science. The material is presented in three parts: one section provides the fundamental content of extragalactic astronomy, another section discusses modern discoveries in detail, and the last section summarizes the earlier discussions within the structure of the Big Bang Theory of Evolution. Each of the three sections is followed by student exercises and activities, laboratory projects, and questions and answers. The glossary contains unfamiliar terms used in the text and a collection of teacher aids such as literature references and audiovisual materials. (Mh)

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the plates taken with the 26-inch McCormick visual refractor and with the 26-inch Yale Southern Station photographic refractor the relative positions of 366 Long-period variable stars have been measured and their relative proper motions derived. For 22 variables both McCormick and Yale plates were available and the motions were derived in duplicate. They served for combining the results
