Experiment involving Kepler's laws

  1. Mar 7, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    In physics class I recently got the assignment to conduct an experiment. It can be anything I want, as long as it involves a substantial amount of physics. I came up with the idea of doing something involving Kepler's laws. I thought it'd be interesting to use them to predict the position of several celestial objects in a month. I'd do all the theoretical work now and in a month I'd head out to see if my predictions were accurate. My question, would this be a feasibly experiment for a high school student or is the level of physics and math involved too much?

    Kind regards,
