Part 9 explores the different aspects of astronomy, with a focus on celestial bodies in space —like stars, planets, and the sun. This video also displays how these different celestial bodies interact together and intersect in the same space. Viewers will learn important terms like “asteroid” and “shooting star” to show how some concepts can be represented differently than what they actually are.
