I sometimes wish that I had an interactive 3D model of our solar system that I could manipulate to understand things.
Is that Venus in the sky and (reflected in our bay) each morning. How can that happen as we are each rotating at different speeds on our own axis and careening at different speeds around the sun through the universe?
And then there is the moon going through its phases, while still in a similar position with the sun each day?
I know that things are right with the world when I can see Orion, but why is it visible in a similar positions both in Anacortes, WA and La Manzanilla?
I should have spent more time absorbing information from that class?
