View Resource Phases of Venus

This simple animation illustrates how we observe the phases of Venus. As the planet revolves around the Sun, there are times of the year when it is observed completely lit up by the star and times when we only get it's dark side. The user can change the inclination of the observing plane, allowing a better understanding of the process.

View Resource Planetary Motion

This web page demonstrates Kepler's Laws through a Flash simulation. The user places an object at some distance from the sun and gives it an initial velocity to orbit the sun. Once the simulation begins, it shows the distance between the planet and the sun, the days that have gone by, and the orbiting speed. An option is also available to show the areas swept out by the object in equal times....
