  • Hello 8th graders! 
  • My name is Mr.Brown and today I have a special guest with me here to talk about astronomy!
  • Please welcome astronaut Samuel Adams!
  • Today I'm here to talk to you about the story of astronomy from Ptomely to Newton.
  • Hello 8th graders!
  • First, we have Ptomely. Ptomely was an Egyptian astronomer. He was born 85 AD and  died 165 AD.
  • His most famous work was the Almagest and it showed people mathematics and astronomy.
  • He believed that the earth was in the center and all the other planets orbited around it. 
  • Ptomely system was a geocentric model. this meant that all planets were moving in epicycles.
  • He also believed that mercury, venus, and the sun were linked and the moon and the sun had no epicycle.
  • Ptomely model explains retrograde motion when the planet moves on the circle it looks like it moves backward.
