Interesting facts about the sunset.
1)Sunlight contains all the colours of the spectrum, each of which has a different wavelength that affects how it is scattered by the billions of molecules in the atmosphere.
2)The red wavelength is the longest and least scattered. So as the sun sets, getting closer and closer to the horizon where the light passes through a thicker portion of the atmosphere, all other colours of the spectrum are scattered, leaving red for cottagers to ooh and aah over.
3)If you’re very lucky, on a clear evening with an unobstructed horizon, you may see the fabled green flash. It is literally a flash of green light (the wavelength is in the middle of the spectrum) being refracted from the last tip of the setting sun.
4)Contrary to claims made by Lake Huron cottagers, National Geographic did not rank their lake’s sunset among the Top Ten in the World. In fact, the folks at NG told us it has never done a top ten anything.
5)The further north you are, the longer the day and the sunset. On this year’s summer solstice, at Ontario’s northernmost Sunset Lake, 130 km northwest of Cochrane, the sun began setting at 9:32 p.m. and finished 44 minutes later. On the most southerly Sunset Lake, east of Burk’s Falls, the sunset started at 8:08 p.m. and lasted 38 minutes.
6)At sunset the sunlight must go through about ten times more atmosphere than at noon. It all has to do with the splitting of the blue light. See the blue light has a short wavelength, so it gets bumped around by the molecules and then becomes scattered.
7)Isaac Newton demonstrated that white light from the sun is comprised of all colors of the rainbow. He did this by using a prism to separate the different colors and in doing so, he created a spectrum. He determined that the colors of light are distinguished by their different wavelengths.
8)But the first steps towards correctly explaining the color of the sky were taken by John Tyndall. In 1859, he discovered that the shorter blue wavelengths are scattered more about than the stronger red ones. He did this by watching what happens when light passes through a clear fluid holding small particles in suspension. That is how we got the name Tyndall effect.
9)Most people think that, in the northern hemisphere, the sun sets the earliest on the December solstice and sets the latest on the June solstice. This is not actually true. The solstices are simply the dates in which, the daylight length is the longest or the shortest.
10)In Arctic or Antarctic regions, where the sun sets at a much more shallow angle, a green flash can last more than half an hour.
