Sunset Trivia: One of the things I love to do while traveling is to watch sunsets at different places, whenever possible. I realized, though, that I didn't know too much about them so I decided to look up some interesting facts. So the next time you look at a sunset you can impress the person you are with by your knowledge of sunset trivia.
1. Sunsets happen because of the Earth's atmosphere.
If the Earth was airless, let's say, like the moon then the sun would look the same as it was dropping behind the horizon. But due to our 300 mile atmosphere, we get the scattered effect of light as the atmosphere acts as a prism.
2. The sun starts to lose color as it sets.
As the sun starts dropping to the horizon it starts to lose its blue wavelength hues, then its green and yellow hues, and eventually orange, leaving only red wavelengths. That is why the sun at the end of a sunset will look like a ball of fire.
3. Pollution causes those prettier sunsets!!!! Sad, isn't it? It will make you think twice when you look at a stunning sunset. Smoke particles are great for filtering out colors, leaving pinks, reds, and oranges become more vivid. But if pollution gets too high, the sky will just look hazy, leaving a murky sunset that no one really appreciates. This is happening a lot in Delhi due to air pollution problem.
P.S:- South Mumbai ( or SoBo south Bombay) looks really impressive from top you should climb to a high vantage point and witness the sunset to believe my words, Here BSE building and other Heritage buildings around Kala Ghoda are visible. #instadaily #canon80d #official_photography_hub #canondelhi #canonindia #landscape #indiaincolor #earthonlocation #outdoors #indiapictures #instagood #earthofficial #traveldiaries #himgeo #yourshotphotographer #adventure #indianphotography #mypixeldiary #CNTGiveitashot #travelphotohraphy #travelpassport #travel #travelgram #natgeodailyshot #lonelyplanetindia #thevisualyatra #earthcapture @tripotocommunity @natgeotravellerindia @lonelyplanetindia @cntravellerindia @indiapictures @streets.of.india @stories.of.india @coloursofindia @southbombay @ghoda_kala
