Astronomy I - The Planets (ASTR 1010)
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 graphical material appearing in lectures is
available for viewing.
