19: Years | A planetary year is the length of time it takes that planet to revolve around the sun. | X-Ray Astronomy | X-ray astronomy studies celestial objects by looking at the x-rays that they give off.

20: ZENITH | ZENITH An observer's zenith is the point directly overhead.

21: Jupiter | I forgot J,W,X,Y | Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and the fifth planet from the sun
