Week 2: Transit Tracks by Ames Research Centre, NASA

Transit Tracks by Ames Research Centre, NASA

With this activity you will learn more about transits and how they affect a light curve of the star they are passing by. Students will be able to describe a transit, how a planet's size and distance from its star affects the behaviour of transists, and interpret graphs of brightness vs time to deduce information about planet-star systems.
