In the Shadows

Rhona Lewis

I follow you around in the light, I say goodbye to you in the night. Who am I? Take three guesses and then read these words back to front: ruoy wodahs. Let’s find out more about the tricks of darkness and light.

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

A shadow is created when an object blocks light. If the object is opaque, (not letting light through, not transparent, like a person or a tree), it will completely block the light and form a dark shadow. If the object is translucent, (not completely clear or transparent but clear enough to allow light to pass through, like a tissue), it only partially blocks light. The light that does travel through scatters and creates a faint shadow. Transparent objects (able to be seen through, like glass), can’t create a shadow because light passes right through them.
