Shadow Notes

• Shadows are formed when light cannot pass through an object.

• The position of light affects the direction of the shadow.

• Shadows are created on the side of the object OPPOSITE the light source.

• Shadows change size according to the position of the light source.

• Shadows on the Earth, caused by the Sun during the day, change size and direction due to the Earth’s rotation on its axis.
