like a pattern or otherwise not quite random?
(This is NOT a homework assignment -- just something for you to think about
before our next meeting.)

TUESDAY/THURSDAY SECTIONS:
Our meeting on Thursday, January 17th was cancelled.
In place of our in-class meeting, please do the following two things:
1) Read the notes on Terrestrial and Jovian planets (also linked above), and
2) View Dr. Seeds's video on some Chapter 2 concepts, "Observing the Sky".
The pre-questions for "Observing the Sky" will be posted here later.
