Professor Harrington loved teaching her students and she enjoyed teaching them about the planets but most already knew the information she had to teach about planets, asteroids is going to be a newer subject for the students. "This week we are going to be studying asteroids. Now asteroid quite literally means star-like because the first spotted from Earth were faint lights in the night time sky, but they moved through celestial sphere much faster than stars."
Professor Harrington moved to the front of the classroom glad to not have to write out so much this week on the board, but did have a few images for the students to follow. "Now, asteroids are rocky objects, sometimes with various make ups of carbon, metals and frozen water that orbit stars like our Sun. They are found throughout the solar system. The largest known Ceres, also known as a dwarf planet, which is 1000km across and others smaller than your heads," Professor Harrington said getting ready to pull up her first image on the front wall of the classroom
Yellow rings are planets the outermost is Jupiter. White dots are the main asteroid belt.
