Sun's energy colors our sky

  1. 1. The Sun’s Energy ……..Colors the Sky
  2. 2. Scatter Effect • Dust, pollen, smoke, salt and other particulates, collectively called “aerosols”, scatter violet, blue, green and even yellow from sunlight leaving only orange and red
  3. 3. Sun Halos Halos around the sun happen when high, thin cirrus clouds are drifting high above your head. Tiny ice crystals in Earth’s atmosphere cause the halos. They do this by refracting and reflecting the light.
  4. 4. Sundogs Sundogs are visible when the sun is near the horizon. As sunlight passes through ice crystals it is bent before reaching our eyes. This bending of light results in the formation of a sundog.
  5. 5. Aurora borealis Auroras occur because of charged particles that come from the Sun. These particles sometimes hit the Earth but we are protected by the Earth’s magnetic field. However, there are weak spots in the Earth’s magnetic field near the polar regions. This is where the charged particles react with particles in the air and create the aurora borealis, an amazing natural phenomenon.
  6. 6. Fun, Sun Facts: • The sun is a star. • It extremely important for life on Earth. • The sun provides us with energy which brings life on our planet. • It defines the seasons, the harvests, and even the sleep patterns of all living creatures on Earth.
  7. 7. • The sun is the closest star to our planet • The sun is much bigger than the Earth. In fact, its radius is 109 times bigger than the radius of the Earth.
