Talk by Dr Cheong Kham Kow
Special IYA Talk by Dr Cheong Kham Kow on Observatory Night Friday, 13 March 2009 @ 8:15pm @ Observatory Classroom (behind Sakura Restaurant at OmniTheatre)
Why are people interested in the Direction of the Sun? – The Use of Astronomy in Modern Living
Does the Sun always rise in the east and set in the west? With their knowledge on apparent annual motion of the Sun, how did our ancestors use it beneficially? How could we use the same knowledge in modern living? A home owner may want to consider a design that boasts of magnificent views of sunrises and sunsets while avoiding the heat.
