Why the Moon Appears to Change Color - The reason the moon appears to change color is due to the reflection of visible light coming from the sun. Because the moon has no light of its own it relies on the reflected light of the sun to create moonlight and change color. The reflection of light coming from the sun cause’s the moon to appear as if it is changing color because as the sun’s light rays travel through the earth’s atmosphere the moon catches light from the sun and reflects it down to earth. As the moon reflects the sun’s light rays down to earth, those rays of light travel through the earth’s atmosphere in the form of different wavelengths which then produce different colors of visible light....   [tags: visible light, reflection, color, rays] 515 words

As libraries advance, they will be required to do so in line with those ideals. In addition to maintaining these standards, libraries do not want to become irrelevant because they waited to see, how technology would change, instead of acting (Law 15)....   [tags: Library Science ]
