3: Why do you want to become a PA for Astronomy? *
4: What are your qualifications for the position of PA for Astronomy? *
5: How many hours are you prepared to spend grading in an average week in which you are in good health? *
6: Before you can start grading, you’ll have to have done all the non-essay assignments and the essays in the first three lessons in Year One Astronomy as taught by Professor Plumb. If you have done them, please take a series of screen shots that include your whole grade book and put a link to each of them in the space below. You will be expected to do the remaining two essays within a reasonable delay after being accepted as a grader. *
7: Please take a screen shot of your Lesson One essay and put a link to it in the space below. *
8: A student sends you the following message by owl post. “I’m stuck on the following question in the Lesson 3 quiz. To what magnifying power should you set your telescope to locate an object in the sky (state the number)? I can’t find the answer anywhere in the lesson.” How do you react? Write in the space below the message you would send to the student. *
9: Question: Which natural satellites have been studied using radar? Student answer: Moons. Grade the answer correct or incorrect and include what feedback, if any, you would give the student about this answer. *
10: Question: Fill in the blank in the following sentence. A certain comet is four times as far from the Sun now as it was a week ago. It now receives ____ as much light as it did a week ago. Student answer: 6.25%. Grade the answer correct or incorrect and include what feedback, if any, you would give the student about this answer. *
Question 11
11: Grade the following Lesson One essay and include what feedback, if any, you would give the student about this essay.

Astronomy (from Greek: ἀστρονομία, literally meaning the science that studies the laws of the stars) is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain their origin and evolution. Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and comets. Relevant phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, quasars, blazars, pulsars, and cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, astronomy studies everything that originates outside Earth's atmosphere. Cosmology is a branch of astronomy. It studies the Universe as a whole. [1]

Astronomy is one of the oldest natural sciences. The early civilizations in recorded history made methodical observations of the night sky. These include the Babylonians, Greeks, Indians, Egyptians, Chinese, Maya, and many ancient indigenous peoples of the Americas. In the past, astronomy included disciplines as diverse as astrometry, celestial navigation, observational astronomy, and the making of calendars. Nowadays, professional astronomy is often said to be the same as astrophysics. [2]

Professional astronomy is split into observational and theoretical branches. Observational astronomy is focused on acquiring data from observations of astronomical objects. This data is then analyzed using basic principles of physics. Theoretical astronomy is oriented toward the development of computer or analytical models to describe astronomical objects and phenomena. These two fields complement each other. Theoretical astronomy seeks to explain observational results and observations are used to confirm theoretical results.

Astronomy is one of the few sciences in which amateurs play an active role. This is especially true for the discovery and observation of transient events. Amateur astronomers have helped with many important discoveries, such as finding new comets.

but thats only mugle astronomy their good at observing because they have better telescopes than us if your a which or wizard you maybe alright at those things but you also know that the plants and the starts have magical affects on us like the full moon turning peeple into werewolfs
