This site contains information regarding the astronomy course AST101 - Astronomy of the Solar System offered at Suffolk County Community College.  Specifically, this information consists of the course outline, lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, and related links.  The course outline is specified according to section, and the lecture notes and PowerPoint presentations are specified according to topic.  Within the lecture notes you will observe numbers, represented as red-colored superscripts, which correspond to numbered slides of images and diagrams within the PowerPoint presentations.  Print the notes, and as you read the notes, refer to the slides.  Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words, so look at the slides carefully, especially the diagrams.  To access the PowerPoint presentations, either left-click on the word "Slides" to open the file or right-click and then choose "Save Target As..." to download onto your computer.  Because the PowerPoint files are rather large, a high-speed Internet connection is preferred.  If you do not have the PowerPoint program, you can download the viewer by clicking here.
