I will explain this to you shortly. "Imagine that in studying the laws of movement of the celestial bodies, let us say the planets of the solar system, you have constructed a special mechanism for the vivid representation and recording of these laws.

Throughout, Benson focuses on a science based on naked-eye observation--the science of a simpler time when the planets were mere points of light and five in number--which makes it easy for the modern novice to grasp the work of these pioneers of astronomy."--book jacket.

This was a great book, each planet had a brief paragraph describing its location and make up and /5(2).If a planet lines up with the sun and Earth and the planet is farther from the sun than Earth, we call it opposition.

There is also a cool word that isn't used very often except in crossword puzzles — syzygy (siz-i-gee) — which means any alignment of three bodies (sun, earth, moon, planet, whatever).
