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]

The Reflection of J. B. Priestley's Political and Philosophical Beliefs in An Inspector Calls

- The Reflection of J. B. Priestley's Political and Philosophical Beliefs in An Inspector Calls In 1945 J. B. Priestley wrote the play "An Inspector Calls". It is a very tense play; the audience are always on the edge of their seats. It is didactic as it conveys a social and moral meaning to the play. The play has naturalistic conversation all the way through, to make it seem real, like you could be there. But it also has surreal elements; for example; the inspectors name is Inspector Goole....   [tags: Papers]

- Profound Duplicity Exhibited by Jekyll as a Reflection of the Victorian Way of Life The Victorian society was filled with many divisions. It consisted of two extremes, the very wealthy and intense poverty. It was these divisions that contributed to the causes behind the life of Henry Jekyll to be split between the two. However, there are many other reasons as to why Jekyll wanted the best of both worlds. Within the Victorian period, there were many successes, including inventions such as the first public railway link between the coal mines of Darlington and the port of Stockton; this was built by an engineer named George Stevenson....   [tags: Papers]

- Traditional gothic fiction was at the height of its popularity during the Victorian era, it exploded in the 1790’s and continued its reign well into the 1800’s. This confrontational style of fiction often blurs the lines of realistic and artificial, forcing readers to challenge their beliefs and surpass the norm. However, the aspect of gothic fiction that was most attractive to the Victorian audience was the way human fears and societal tensions were reflected in the deliberately fictionalised literary works....   [tags: Oscar Wilde]

The gaps of this analysis are the spaces in-between each step (Hughes et al., 2012). To bridge these gaps, a development plan should be constructed (Hughes et al., 2012). “A good development plan is like a road map: it clearly identifies the final destination, lays out the steps or interim check points, builds in regular feedback to keep people on track, identifies when additional resources are needed, and builds in reflection time so people can periodically review progress and determine whether an alternative route is needed,” (Hughes et al., 2012)....   [tags: road map, feedback, resources, reflection]

Criminology Reflection

- Over the years I have been a faithful fan of anything crime related; the anatomy of a crime, from the crime itself, to the investigation, and finally the court for trial and sentencing. I enjoyed the process. The internet became an interesting tool for me to learn all the different things I wanted to know about the subject of crime. I would see something in the media or on television but kept a neutral point of view about technology that was used on a program. Logically speaking, if a crime could be solved in 47 minutes and DNA results took weeks or months, not minutes to process than would it not make sense that real life crimes would be solved far quicker in the name of swift justice....   [tags: Criminology ]
