Light, Shadow And Reflection class 6
The Sun, is another familiar object that gives its own light. During the day, its light allows us to see objects. Objects like the sun that give out or emit light of their own are called luminous objects.We see these when light from a luminous object (like the Sun, a torch or an electric light) falls on these and then travels towards our eye.
If we cannot see through an object at all, it is an opaque object. If you are able to see clearly through an object, it is allowing light to pass through it and is transparent. There are some objects through which we can see, but not very clearly. Such objects are known as translucent.
We all use mirrors at home. You look into the mirror and see your own face inside the mirror. What you see is a reflection of your face in the mirror. We also see reflections of other objects that are in front of the mirror. Sometimes, we see reflections of trees, buildings and other objects in the water of a pond or a lake.
What is solar eclipse?
When the sun, the moon, and the earth come in a straight line, with the moon in the middle, the shadow of the moon may fall on some portion of the earth. Then a solar eclipse can be seen from these areas on the earth. In some regions the sin will be blocked totally at these places, a total solar eclipse can be seen, whereas the rest of the region the sun will be partially blocked by the moon and a partial solar eclipse can be seen.
What is a lunar eclipse?
In a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the earth falls on the moon. When the sun, the earth, and the moon come in a straight line, with the earth in the middle, the shadow of the earth falls on the moon. When the moon is in one position no light from the sun falls on it (a particular region) and we observed a total lunar eclipse. And in other region, a partial lunar eclipse can be seen. Note that when a lunar eclipse occurs, its bright side faces the earth. That is, a lunar eclipse occurs on a full moon day.
