Optical Phenomenons


  * Rainbows - the interaction between the sun's rays and water particles in the air.
  * The color of the Sky
  * Complete Internal Reflection  ... I think you mean "Complete Internal Reflection"Leesonma 02:34, 30 August 2007 (UTC) - reflection of a light rays through a medium
  * Aurora Borealis - an event mostly scene in alaska as....
  * Solar Eclipse - when the moon is in front of the sun blocking out its path of light
  * Lunar Eclipse - when the moon is directly behind the earth
  * Mirage
  * Afterglow
  * Green rays - interaction of the suns blue/violet rays and the earth lower atmosphere
  * Light pillar - The reflection of the suns rays on ice crystals...

We're gonna cover Eclipses pretty well using my notes, but there are related topics you can do for me... why does the moon get so red during a Lunar eclipse, and what strange research do people do during Solar eclipses? Leesonma 03:16, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Amaetha 00:17, 4 September 2007 (UTC)Cool, its actually interesting. Apparently, the moon gets red because of the earth atmosphere is bending or refracting the sunlight on the earths shadow and then on to the moon as it travels through the atmosphere making the moon appear red during a lunar eclipse.

Leesonma 02:02, 4 September 2007 (UTC) The 2 ideas seem related, but it turns out to be an effect caused by 2 different forces/phenomena. I hope you include both in your project, which is due in a week.

Amaetha 01:16, 5 September 2007 (UTC)Most likely it will be in there, but still not sure wat to make it with...hum...not having much help with this, but I guess i will figure something out.

Leesonma 03:33, 5 September 2007 (UTC) Will there be demonstrations? Do you need equipment? Have you installed If so, you should use it to create a Presentation, much like PowerPoint. There are plenty of images online to help explain your phenomena, but you do need to get both partners involved somehow.

Amaetha 01:15, 6 September 2007 (UTC)I'm thinking about a openoffice powerpoint or something like that. Rod doesn't have internet access at home so most we discussed it a bit in your class today and figured to just use a flash drive and work on it in there or something....-_-;

Amaetha 01:27, 6 September 2007 (UTC)On second thought, I'm going to just make a powerpoint about it. I found other ones that are cool!! And i might need to borrow ur physics textbook just to check on the complete internal reflection, because i might do it or not at all....

Let me know what I need to do.
