Standing in front of the classroom Jethro waited for his students to pile into the classroom, eyes scanning each pupil as they filed inside. Once the classroom was filled he tapped the board with his wand, revealing what they would be learning this lesson.


Galaxies are classified into three main types:
*Spiral galaxies
*Elliptical galaxies
*Irregular galaxies

Once he felt the students had taken the time to read the board, he began his lesson. "As you can see we are going to learn about the types of Galaxies. I will start with the one I am sure most of you will be familiar with as it is our own Galaxy. Spiral Galaxies." He tapped his wand on a strange device that was sitting on his desk, the golden sphere opening up and projecting a large, blue, 3D image of the Milky Way.

"This is the Milky Way, our Galaxy. Spiral galaxies, such as the Milky Way, consist of a flat disk with a bulging center and surrounding spiral arms. The galaxy's disk includes stars, planets, dust, and gas—all of which rotate around the galactic center in a regular manner.
This spinning motion, at speeds of hundreds of kilometers per second, may cause matter in the disk to take on a distinctive spiral shape like a cosmic pinwheel. Some spiral galaxies obtain even more interesting shapes that earn them descriptive names, such as sombrero galaxies.

Older stars reside in the bulge at the center of the galactic disk. Many new stars also form in spiral systems, and their disks are surrounded by a halo, which is believed to be rich with mysterious dark matter."

Tapping his wand on another spot of the sphere, the image it showed changed, swirling around in blues and purples until the completed image was formed. The image seemed almost dull in comparison to the Spiral galaxy as it was just an elliptical shape with stars scattered around it.

"The elliptical Galaxy shown here is called Messier 110, also known as NGC 205, and is a dwarf elliptical galaxy. Elliptical galaxies are shaped as their name suggests. They are generally round but stretch longer along one axis than along the other. They may be nearly circular or so elongated that they take on a cigarlike appearance.

Elliptical galaxies contain many older stars, up to one trillion, but little dust and other interstellar matter. Their stars orbit the galactic center, like those in the disks of spiral galaxies, but they do so in more random directions."

With a final tap to the Sphere, another, final image appeared. The image was similar to that of a bird, a barrage of colour spreading out along what looked to be a wing and along the 'body' of the bird. It was the prettiest of the images, in Jethro's opinion, and his go-to when showing the students Irregular Galaxies.

"The irregular Galaxy shown here is a galaxy called Iras 19115-2124 and is often referred to as 'The Bird Galaxy' for obvious reasons. Irregular galaxies, like this one, appear misshapen and lack a distinct form, often because they are within the gravitational influence of other galaxies close by."

With his brief explanations done, he waved his wand over the sphere, dissolving the images. "For your homework, which can be started in this lesson, I would like each of you to choose a Galaxy and write an essay about it. It should include any notable stars or planets within in, the shape and size of it and what type of Galaxy it falls under.

Now, you may begin."

It wasn't often that something so silly caused him to anger after so much time and, in this case, it wasn't so much anger as a sense of deep disappointment in the students. As it was he needed to just find a place to take his mind of the stupid article of fake rumours. Without even thinking he headed towards the staffroom to find one of his more favoured colleagues, Billy.

As it happened there was not a soul in the staffroom and, letting out a soft curse, he turned tail and headed towards the Defence classroom. Perhaps his friend had stayed behind to grade papers or something. It was at least worth a shot.

Just before he reached the door, he was stopped by one of his fourth years - Mr Lang, if he wasn't mistaken. It took a full half an hour to deal with the boys questions and it eased some of his earlier annoyance. When a student took an interest in his class, or Astronomy in general, he always found himself perking up and happy to discuss any part of the subject in detail. He hoped his students felt the same way.

With a word of goodbye to Mr Lang, he finally reached the Defence classroom. Jethro peeked his head around the door, scanning the empty room and frowning. With a last ditch effort he maneuvered his way through the classroom and up the stairs to Billy's office, rapping his knuckles against the door three times.

Standing in front of the classroom Jethro waited for his students to pile into the classroom, eyes scanning each pupil as they filed inside. Once the classroom was filled he tapped the board with his wand, revealing what they would be learning this lesson.

Once it was revealed he gave the students a minute to read it before starting to talk. "As you can see from the board we are learning about what magic should be performed on certain days of the week according to the planets." He paused, eyeing the students. "Now personally, I don't necessarily think that the day of the week will influence magic but this will be on your exams so it must be covered."

Jethro didn't enjoy this part of Astronomy, mostly due to the fact that he didn't believe in it. Yes there were effects of the moon on magic, just look at potion ingredients which needed to be collected on certain moon phases, but days of the week affecting magic because the planets were assigned to days? No thank you.

"Your homework is going to be more of a project than normal homework and should be done alongside the upcoming Astronomy homework." He didn't give the class any chance to groan about that and moved into what the homework was. "To test this theory I would like for all of you to pick a day of the week, bar Friday for obvious reasons, and practice one aspect of that day.

For a month I would like you to practice whatever aspect you have chosen, for example Transfiguration charms on Thursday, and write what you have observed. Was the charm easier to perform than usual? Did you feel anything different that what you normally feel? Etcetera, etcetera." He narrowed his eyes. "Please do not choose an aspect of magic that you can not do, for example apparition or human transfiguration."

Scanning the room one last time, Jethro leaned back against the desk. "For the rest of this lesson I would like you to chose your day and aspect of magic and practice it. For those who do choose transfiguration, there are some toothpicks on my desk which you can transform into nails."

Jethro sat in front of his desk, elbows resting on the table with his chin in his hands as he waited for the students to trickle into his class. It was quite an interesting lesson today, about the difference within the planet and how it affected the magic back on Earth. He was starting with the moon and how that affected magic but throughout the year he would be expanding on how different planetary alignments can affect magic.

On the board behind him was;

Phases of the Moon

Special Moon Phases and What Magic they Affect

Super Full Moon: Transfiguration and Transformation magic
Micro New Moon: Offensive Magic
Micro Full Moon: Defensive Magic
Super New Moon: Charms and Protective Spells
Total Lunar Eclipse: Dark Arts

Once all the students arrived Jethro started on his lesson. "As you can see from the board, we are starting to learn about the phases of the moon and how they affect our magic. What I have written up is all the positive effects." He paused, looking around the room. "But with each changing state, there is also negative effects."

"I would like each of you to write out what you think, taking note of the positive, what negative effects might occur during these phases. You are more than welcome to talk to the person sitting next to you to discuss your thoughts." With another sweep at his students, he gave a nod.

The picture on the blackboard behind Jethro wasn't the best drawn image but he had tried and had gotten most of the winter constellations up on the board. Today was actually one of his favourite lessons, as it was always fun to see which students could find the constellations within the night sky. He had warned the students in the previous lesson to be wrapped up warmly for the following lessons as they would be using the telescopes outside. He did hope that they remembered that and didn't come in without anything warm on.

Of course he could cast a warming charm on the balcony that they used but the students wouldn't get the full immersive feel if they were provided with easy warmth. That and he did enjoy seeing how smart his students were in bundling up and could he be blamed if a few of them went back shivering due to their inability to use their brains?

Pleased with his set up he sat on his chair, already bundled up in a scarf, hat and a stylish winter coat. All that was left to do was to wait for his students.
