Problem 13E

A setting Sun is seen as distorted on Earth, but not by astronauts on the Moon. What causes this distortion?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 13E The earth has an atmosphere around it. So, the sunlight gets refracted as it enters the earth’s atmosphere. Thus, the sun gets distorted at sunset. But no such atmosphere exists in the moon. So, sunlight does not have any refraction from atmosphere.
