Astronomy I - The Planets (ASTR 1010)


Lecture Notes


Below are ppt files for lectures that will be presented in class. Some transparencies, boardwork, dvd clips will also be used, so the ppts are not complete representations of the lectures given in class. Some of the ppts are also densely packed with images. I have provided them mainly so that most of the graphical material appearing in lectures is available for viewing.
