As I grew nearer to the asteroid, I felt glad of myself being safely inside my spacecraft. The jagged edges of the asteroid looked as though they could tear right through me – I just hoped the re-enforced metal on the spacecraft was enough to keep me safe. I didn’t like the thought of being sucked into space and being cut into a thousand pieces by this huge asteroid.
I was rather surprised at how it looked, as from earth, all I could see was what looked like a faint star, but up close like this, I noticed it was more like a giant pitted rock which was rotating alarmingly. As I steered the ship around the asteroid, I noticed that it was mainly dark grey in colour with darker grey spots which appeared like small craters, possibly due to a collision with the many other asteroids in the asteroid belt.
I watched its rotation for about an hour before I became dizzy. The readings upon our space craft could tell that the gravitational pull of Jupiter was keeping both the asteroid and us away from the planets, though now it was time for us to break free. Turning on the acceleration, we shot from Jupiters pull and away from the asteroid, which looked more and more like a star the further we went away from it.

AS I looked through my telescope I saw mini planets floating around in space. As I looked closer I realized that it wasn’t very small planets but rocks. A good bit of them where close to mars and Jupiter. Why weren’t they colliding into other planets? I asked myself. Then it hit me. It must because of Jupiter. Jupiter is so big and because of this it has a strong gravitational pull and this pull must keep the rocks from wondering off and hitting the other planets. The next question that hit my head was how did the rocks get there in the first place.
I quickly went to my friends house to see if she knew about these rocks. She said that they were called asteroids and they were remains of planets that got destroyed because of Jupiter’s powerful gravitation pull. She also said that the asteroids were not smooth rocks but were instead rough and rocky. She also said about how there was Kirkwood gaps or concentric gaps in the asteroid belt and how all of the asteroids in between mars and Jupiter were called the asteroid bell. Then me and my friend took a look at the asteroid in her telescope and saw that there was craters on them I asked her why that was so and she said because of all of the collations of getting hit by other asteroids. Then I relized at that point that I had to go and get home so I bid her goodnight and headed home. As I left I relized I would never forget what I learned that day when I first saw an asteroid.

Part 1

1. Most asteroids are located where in the solar system and approximately how many are there believed to be there? (4)

Most asteroids are in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. There could be millions of asteroids in the main belt; tens of thousands are known now to be there.

2. What are most asteroids made of? (2)

Most asteroids are remnants of the protoplanetary disk. They fall into 3 groups, made up of carbon silicates, stony silicates and iron, or metals.

3. What is the name of the largest asteroid? (2)

The largest asteroid in our solar system is 1 Ceres.

4. What are the concentric gaps in the asteroid belt called? (2)

The concentric gaps are Kirkwood gaps.

5. Do any of the asteroids have an orbiting moon? If yes, what are they called? (2)

Yes. They are usually called binary asteroids because they are two asteroids that orbit a center of gravity.

6. What is another name for asteroids? (2)

Asteroids are also known as minor planets.

7. What is an asteroid belt? (2)

An asteroid belt is any orbit consistong of many asteroids. The main belt is the biggest in our solar system.

8. Which planet pulls the asteroid belt away from the sun and how does this happen? (2)

Jupiter's gravity pulls the asteroids away from the sun.

9. What are Kirkwood gaps? (2)

Kirkwood gaps are gaps in the main asteroid belt caused by the influence of Jupiter's gravity.


Part 2:

January 1, 1801
From the Journal of Giuseppe Piazzi
-------------------------------------------

Tonight I observed the constellation Taurus, in accordance with continuing my zodiac investigations for the catalogue. My notes are as follows.

I was looking through my telescope at the observatory and noting the positions of the stars in the Taurus family. Then I noted a body not catalogued already. I cleaned my lens, mostly out of disbelief because Johann maintains those lenses quite admirably. However, I did not want any observations mistaken as a result of such a careless error. I was amazed! It was a new star, or some other astronomical body. Imagine the significance of this event. Of course I must write to the Astronomical Society. I shall wait, however, until I can take measurements again. I would not wish my work to be less accurate than possible, just to announce a discovery. I think I shall take measurements over the course of a month or so before I write to my fellow astronomers. That should give me ample time to gain some understanding as to what this object is. It does not glow like a star. I might say it is a comet, but I think it may be a small planet! Imagine the stir that would cause. I think it would be best to call it a comet for now, at least until I know more about it.

Part 2:

London, January 1st

I celebrate this date as this was the first time i set eyes upon an asteroid, and this is how it came about.
I couldnt sleep so took to my rooftop to meet with my new birthday telescope, an extremely powerful one. After setting it up, I put my eye to the scope and couldnt believe my eyes. An asteroid seemed to be hurtling towards the earth, yes it was stillvery far away, yet it was apparent - it was coming towards us, and I feared that it would destroy us if it didnt change course. It looked like one, crator filled jagged rock, with tiny rocks hurtling around it, all appearing of a light grey colour wih deeper grey colourings as the light of the moon hit its surface.
As I continued to watc, I noticed it come through into our atmosphere, though I was frozen to the spot. Suddenly, it seemed as though the atmosphere beat this asteroid, as it burst, rocks and flames firing everywhere. The forest near my house burnt through the night, people were terrified it would happen again, but for me, that date will stay in my memory forever.

Bonus:

Post a picture of an asteroid or the asteroid belt and write a short caption for it

Asteroids Asteroid-Belt
The asteroid belt is a 'belt' of rocky bodies between Mars and Jupiter that is centered around 2.7AU. The total mass of the Main Asteroid Belt may be less than 1/1000 of the mass of Earth. If all the asteroids were combined together, their diameter would be about 1,300-1,500 kilometers across, less than 1/2 the diameter of the Moon.

Part 2:
June 3, 2000
I saw it. I finally saw it! My brother thinks he's so cool because he went to space camp and could name everything in space. When I commented that he may have READ everything but I would experience it. He claimed only after I saw a flying asteroid. So that is why I've been sitting here every night for the past month so I could prove him wrong. But that's not the point. The point is that I saw it for the first time today. I still remember exactly how it felt. My eyes were starting to fade shut as it reached 2 in the morning. My mom had long given up on trying to get me to sleep. The stars started to fade from my mind when suddenly there it was! At first it seemed like a shooting star yet as thought just for me, it started to fly awcross the sky in slow motion. I hear a slight roaring in my head and the asteroid slight whistle like noise. The deep red and orange pinpoint faded across the sky. contrasting toward the other plain white stars in the background. I knew I would remember that moment forever. To bad my stupid brother wouldn't believe me. The closest he's every been to a flying asteroid is my shoe flying at him.

I was sitting in my room watchimg my favorite tv show and all of a suddden I feel this strong gust of wind and check my bedroom window.I stand in awe at what was outside my window in the sky.It was this big long strip of mist and I had never seen anything like that.I was alone because my parents were out partying somewhere without me.
I went outside and it was so bright that I didnt even need a flashlight.I stared at it because it was like nothing I had ever seen.As far as I could see there was that one long strip of mist.I decided to take a closer look and all of a sudden the air got really heavy and thick.I saw the strangest things in that strip of mist they were like really mimi planets that havent quite formed.As I walked closer it was like the elevation was rising because it became harder and harder to breathe.I got freaked out and went back inside to my bedroom and thought its not harming if I dont get near it so I forgot about it and eventually fell asleep.The next mring the weird strip of mist wasnt there and I was very relieved.

Part 1

1. Most asteroids are located where in the solar system and approximately how many are there believed to be
there? (4)
- Most asteroids lie in a belt between Mars and Jupiter. These asteroids lie in a location in the solar system where there seems to be a jump in the spacing between the planets. There about more than 100,000 asteroids there.

2. What are most asteroids made of? (2)
- Asteroids are small bodies that are believed to be left over from the beginning of the solar system 4.6 billion years ago. They are rocky objects with round or irregular shapes up to several hundred km across, but most are much smaller.

3. What is the name of the largest asteroid? (2)
- Ceres

4. What are the concentric gaps in the asteroid belt called? (2)
- Kirkwood gaps.

5. Do any of the asteroids have an orbiting moon? If yes, what are they called? (2)
- Yes, 243 Ida.

6. What is another name for asteroids? (2)
- Minor planets or planetoids.

7. What is an asteroid belt? (2)
- This is the region of the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. It is occupied by numerous irregularly shaped bodies called asteroids or minor planets.

8. Which planet pulls the asteroid belt away from the sun and how does this happen?
(2)
- Jupiter. The huge gravitational pull of Jupiter accelerated these asteroids to more than three miles per second -- too fast to prevent violent collisions.

9. What are Kirkwood gaps? (2)
- These are relatively empty regions between the main concentrations of asteroids in the Main Belt. These are regions where an object's orbital period would be a simple fraction of that of Jupiter.

Part 2: [What I wrote is about me seeing meteors, though I know that they are somewhat different, at some point they are also somewhat alike. And since I want my work to have a connection with me for some reason this time, I used it. Anyway, if it’s too off, just inform me and I’ll make a new one. Asteroids 436937]

One night, when I was at the rooftop with my aunt, gazing at the vast black veil wrapping the Earth’s atmosphere, we have seen something we have unexpected to see. Being up there was like a routine for the two of us. It is where we usually discuss stuffs about what happened on our day. So, one can say that we are not expecting to see a shooting star or something alike, but we did. Asteroids 436937 In the middle of our chat she turned around and to her surprise she saw a falling freely on a straight path downward. What she managed to exclaimed was, “A shooting star!” And those words made me turn around in a quick pace, too. I was in awe at the moment I have seen it. I will never forget its “contrail”. It stained the sky’s black veil of a reddish to bluish to whitish ray of light for seconds. Its picture made me seem to float for a moment in space. It was as if I have seen the most beautiful scene in the world. I don’t know how to put every emotion I have felt at that moment actually, and it has been a long time when that happened. Though I do can remember still the clear picture of the scene, and the presence of joy within me as I have caught a glimpse of it - not to mention the goose bumps and shock. And since this is not a close encounter, I didn’t hear any as we saw it. (257 words)

Asteroids. These small bodies orbiting the Sun are sometimes called minor planets or planetoids. Have also been referred as the SSSB (small Solar System Body) and planetule. But whatever other people may say, they are STILL rocks! Their only difference to the normal rocks we know is that they float in space. --Rita's Skater
