Sun, Moon, Planets, Stars, Seasons:
-Motions of Sun, Moon, Planetary objects, and Stars can be observed and patterns noted
-The shape of the Moon can be observed, recorded and modeled to infer reasons patterns of shadows.
-Models of the solar system show patterns that cause seasons and the appearance of planetary objects in the night sky
-Tidal patterns can be understood as a result of Sun/Moon gravity.
-Patterns of Sun and shadow on planetary bodies causes seasons
-Patterns of rock layers help estimate geologic time
-Patterns of radioactive decay help estimate geologic time
-Patterns of atmospheric currents are influenced by angle of the Sun's rays.
-Data from radiation measurements and observation of galaxies shows the patterns of galaxies and movement
