6.39 – EVENTS IN THE SKY

Did you know that since 1997, over 8000 operating satellites orbited the Earth performing various functions such as taking photographs of our planet? One way scientists learn more about the Earth is to carefully examine photographs that are taken by an orbiting satellite.

a. Draw an angle from Satellite A that shows the portion of the Earth's equator that is visible from the satellite. Label the point of tangency points D and F.

b. Draw a quadrilateral ADEF that connects Satellite A, the points of tangency, and the center of the Earth (point E). What is the relationship of the sides of the angle and the circle that represents the equator of the Earth?
