Altitude increases UV radiation for example one of the pink areas is on top of the Anders Mountains in South American.
While reading “Sunset” by, H. P. Lovecraft, a great deal of childhood memories flooded my thoughts. In fact, “Sunset” revived some of my earliest memories as a child who has witnessed many sunsets on the picturesque shores of Naples, Florida. The family outings, picnics, and days at the parks all came back to me in an astonishing revelation; these glory days were spent with my family and now are the most cherished memories I have with them. I remember Sunsets in Florida, along the shores, as a remarkable event and can recount the golden ball of flames as it melted into the ocean, and said good bye once again to the Sunshine State.

Dreams lead to false hopes and are deceiving! That’s at least what some say. But throughout the dream unit we have seen and have read about achieving our dreams and not going the distance. It is worth it to dream because dreams give us hope and purpose, working hard at our dreams can have a great outcome, and Dreams can lead to more than we can imagine.
The light that the Sun provides, also helps to light up different objects in the night sky, even if their billions of miles away.
Around 11:30am I traveled over to Barfield Crescent Park to observe the Baseball field under the open sky. The weather was on my side, giving me a cloud filled sky with a slight breeze. Given I was outside, I was blessed a luminous, almost blinding, natural light from the Sun. Since I was here around noon the Sun was shining right above me, illuminating all off the field and the surrounding area perfectly. Starting out I thought the Sun was giving off a good amount of light. but by my first picture I could tell that the intensity was low and closer to a gray overcast. This was caused because of a cloud passing by the Sun’s natural light causing the light to diffuse more and seem darker. Natural light does not give off a color, therefore the
One of the most familiar constellations in the night sky aside from the Big and Little Dipper is Orion, the Hunter. Made identifiable by the three bright stars that make up "Orion's Belt", Orion is easily recognized throughout the world due to the convenient position upon the celestial equator, allowing
Reasons to Dream “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars,” said Les Brown. Throughout the dream unit we have seen lots of videos of people who have achieved their dreams. But also of some people who didn’t achieve their dreams after they worked for it. But they ended up in the stars and were happy with what they did achieve. But just because some people don’t always achieve their dream doesn’t mean everyone can’t there’s a chance to achieve the dreams. But if we don’t we can still end up with part of the dreams or still achieve something.
Through “statisticulation,” advertisers and propagandists misinform their audience with statistics in different forms. “The Darkening Shadow” is a prime example. Distributed by the First National Bank of Boston, a map shows what portion of our national income is now being taken, and spent, by the federal government. To show this, it shades the areas west of the Mississippi to indicate that federal spending has become equal to the total incomes of the people of those states. The states west of the Mississippi have relatively large areas compared to the east, and makes for a more convincing visual. However, while those states have larger areas, they have much smaller populations and, on average, make considerably less than states farther east
What causes rainbows? A rainbow is caused by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. . It takes the form of a multicolored arc; Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the side of sky directly opposite the sun. A primary rainbow the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner part.
Beautiful sunsets were a daily occurrence that I took for granted, until a year ago. I am an Arizona native and every night I would look at the sky and see a breathtaking sunset, that filled the sky with a mixture of oranges, yellows, and reds. When I moved to Florida, last year, I started to notice that the sunsets there were not what I was used to. They were simply normal and not picture worthy. This got me wondering; why are some sunsets prettier than others? I put this question in the back of my head and didn’t think about it again until I participated in the Blue Sky lab. Sunsets are created by light rays scattering across the sky. Arizona’s sunsets are unique because of the clouds, dust particles in the air, and dry climate.
Perception of Color Color is determined by the lengths of waves of light. Although there is no sure way to fully tell how we actually perceive color, there are two theories that seek to explain so. One is the trichromatic and the other opponent-process. Whereas one theory lacks in explaining a key problem the other succeeds, which is the case of the trichromatic theory and afterimages. Although the trichromatic theory does not explain the phenomenon of afterimages, of the two theories, the trichromatic one best explains how we see color.
When the Sun's light is refracted on passing through tiny rain droplets falling in the air a Rainbow is formed. Rainbows only need light from the sun or the moon and a large amount of spherical raindrops to form in the atmosphere. The rainbows can be compared to mini prisms.
Faulkner calls out racial prejudice and social circumstances with his story, That Evening Sun. The story follows an African American woman, Nancy, who is employed by a white family. The father is a very influential character in the story. Nancy washes the family’s laundry and cooks for them while their main chef is sick. Nancy is pregnant which causes her partner, Jesus, to get very angry and vow revenge against the man who raped her. He leaves town and Nancy lives in fear of Jesus coming back to kill her. She tries to hide in her employer’s house, much to the mother’s protest. Eventually, her luck runs out and the father leaves her alone for Jesus to find after she lures his children to her house for protection. The last time she is seen is in her house waiting for Jesus to kill her. The father is someone who seems to care for Nancy’s wellbeing. He walks her home and lets her sleep in the house for a couple of days, but he seems to be almost emotionless. He takes his job as father and employer seriously. Epictetus and Bernard Russell would argue that the father is an ideal person that is living a good life based on their works. Russell’s The Conquest of Happiness talks about living objectively and finding external sources to keep a person’s purpose fulfilled. Epictetus’s handbook describes a person who is calm and accepts things as they come, a person who observes and does not react to the events happening around him. Both works have things in common and outline the father as an ideal man who fits into these categories.
