Blog – Fun Fact Friday

Fun Fact Friday, all you ever wanted to know about sunrises!

-Sunrise is actually an illusion, because the sun never goes away – it is the earth that moves. When the earth rotates towards the East, the sun appears and seems to rise

– Sunlight is white, refraction from water and gas molecules causes the white light to break down into the colours we see

– Why do we mostly see red, orange and yellow? This is due to these colours having the longest wavelength

– Those places with less air pollutants have more intense sunrises (and sunsets) due to less scattering of the white sunlight

– Partial cloud can make an excellent amplifier of a sunrise, this is because the cloud reflects the first light of the sun
