Why is there a demand for Class 4 Astronomy Olympiad?
Do you know the exact shape of the Earth? Is Earth round? Well, the exact shape of the Earth is called a geoid. In simple terms, it is considered a sphere in form with flattened at the top and bulge at the equator. Do you know, long back ago, people used to believe that the Earth was flat, and hence they threatened to sail out far to the sea, and they may fall off? With the advent of technology, the astronauts discovered the correct shape of the Earth. Do you know the reason behind the causes of the day and night? It all depends on the rotation of the Earth. You may be wondering how the Earth can rotate? It rotates on its axis; it is an imaginary line on which the Earth spins from west to east and takes 24hours to complete one rotation. Now, to understand the reason behind the causes of day and night, let us perform an activity.
Requirements: Globe and torch.
Steps to follow:
Keep the Globe on the table.
Light the torch from the font of the Globe.
The portion of the Globe lit by the light of the torch is considered the day.
The portion which remains dark represents the night.
I hope you have understood the causes of day and night. Suppose you are curious to learn more about astronomy and enthusiast to explore the night sky and the planets. In that case, appearing in class 4 Astronomy Olympiad will give a platform to showcase your potential and talent worldwide.
