Why the Moon Appears to Change Color

- The reason the moon appears to change color is due to the reflection of visible light coming from the sun. Because the moon has no light of its own it relies on the reflected light of the sun to create moonlight and change color.

As the moon reflects the sun’s light rays down to earth, those rays of light travel through the earth’s atmosphere in the form of different wavelengths which then produce different colors of visible light....   [tags: visible light, reflection, color, rays]

Symbolism in Charlotte Bronte´s Jane Eyre

- Dialectical Journal: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte Moon Bronte uses the moon as a metaphor to symbolize change in the novel. It is a representation of foreshadowing, because it is cuing that a change is about to occur before it actually does.
