I understand that there are empty spaces in atoms and that atoms occupy any empty space (open air) but what if there was a space where there was absolutely nothing on our earth? It is here to advance our knowledge of the Universe though. This note covers the following topics: introduction, earth, moon, and sun, gravity and orbits, earth motions and seasons, moon motions and phases, eclipses, the solar system, planet properties, motions of the night sky, constellations and star charts and conclusion.

Students in either option may work with astronomy faculty (many of whom have appointments in Physics). The entire system is rotating such that, at the position of the Sun, the orbital speed is about 220 km per second (almost 500,000 miles per hour) and a complete circuit takes roughly 240 million years. This Notebooking Journal is the perfect complement to Exploring Creation with Astronomy. Because we now know how many galaxies there are, how they’re distributed throughout the Universe, and roughly how big they are physically, it’s possible to calculate how much of the sky is covered in galaxies.

Research into Swedenborg’s life and activities is prioritised. In it are combined the sciences of number and quantity, or rest and motion. Until the invention of the telescope and the discovery of the laws of motion and gravity in the 17th century, astronomy was primarily concerned with noting and predicting the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets, originally for calendrical and astrological purposes and later for navigational uses and scientific interest.
