This course is designed to survey the subject of solar system astronomy at the introductory level. We begin our journey with a brief history of astronomy with a focus on its role in Dine culture, and the study of cyclical motions of the objects we see in our sky. We will develop the physical principles needed to understand gravity and electromagnetic radiation (light) as we step our way through the planets and other objects in our solar system. Lab included.
