Shadows On Other Worlds

Explore the wonder of light from our star, the Sun, and how Shadows On Other Worlds, like on Venus or a faraway planet orbiting the red star Glise 581, would behave a little differently than they do here on Earth. This educational video is one in a series from The Royal Observatory Greenwich, animated by Beakus.

Next, watch Newton’s Three Laws of Motion and How Do We Know How Old the Sun Is? Plus: Anamorphic Star Wars Shadow Art, Eclipses Throughout Our Universe, and more shadows.
