What is the length of daylight on the Moon?
The length of daylight is the longest on the summer solstice, usually June 21st.
Earth's moon has a rotational period of about 28 (earth) days, so there would be about 14 days of daylight followed by 14 days of nighttime on the moon.
at places closer to the equator
Staying true to the question the way it's written, it's the other way around - it's the seasons that affect the length of day and night. The hemisphere whose pole points t…owards the sun gets summer and longer days and the hemisphere whose pole points away from the sun gets winter. And the further away from the equator the more pronounced the difference becomes, with the poles having continuous night during winter and continuous day during summer. It turns out that the elliptical orbit of the Earth has little effect on the seasons. Instead, it is the23.45-degree tilt of the planet's rotational axis that causes us to have winter and summer. The diagram below demonstrates what happens. In this diagram, you can see the axis of rotation and the equator. The Northern Hemisphere (at the top) is currently experiencing winter, and the Southern Hemisphere is experiencing summer. By looking at how sunlight is landing on the planet in the diagram, you can clearly see two things: The Southern Hemisphere is getting about three times as much sunlight as the Northern Hemisphere. The North Pole is getting zero sunlight, which is why it experiences 24 hours of darkness in January. That huge difference in the amount of sunlight reaching the ground in the different hemispheres is what causes the seasons.
In the Northern Hemisphere, December 21 has the shortest length of daylight, and the longest length of Daylight is June 21. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the oppos…ite.
The earth is tilted about its axis. The earth revolves around the sun over the year. At a certain point, one of the two hemispheres will be tilted towards the sun. This he…misphere is relatively closer to the sun and sunlight falls directly, hence it is summer here and winter in the other hemisphere. During the summer the days are longer.
The length of the period of light directly on the Equator remains the same all year.
The Earth rotates around it's own axis every 24 hours. The side of the Earth which faces the Sun is considered day. The moon roughly revolves around the Ea…rth every 28 days. The moon does not produce any light itself. When you see the moon you are seeing light which is reflected off the moon's surface. The amount of light reflected depends on the angle the moon makes between the Earth and the Sun. These cause the phases of the moon. For example, when the Earth is between the moon and the Sun, a full moon is seen only at night. Because the side of the moon which reflects the sunlight is facing the part of the Earth that is facing away from the Sun. You can only see a full moon at night. When the moon is between the Earth and the Sun, the side of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight is pointed away from the Earth, so you can't see the light. This is a new moon. Between these two extremes are the other phases, crescents, quarters, gibbons. Each representing more and more of the surface of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight. During these phases, portions of the Earth can see the reflected sunlight off the moon while that portion also faces the sun. Hence you see the moon during the day. If you see the moon rising after the sunrise the moon is going from new moon to full moon. Each morning you will see more and more of the moon, and the moon will rise later and later. Until the moon only rises after the sunsets, which would be a full moon. Similarly, if the moon is east of the sun, the moon is going from new moon to full moon. If you see the moon setting before the sunset, the moon is going from full moon to a new moon. Each evening you will see less and less of the moon until the moon disappears which would be a new moon. Similarly, if the moon is west of the sun the moon is going from full moon to new moon.
It is december i think lol.
the Earth's orbit around the sun is elliptical so Earth is farther away from the sun in some places (winter) and closer in some places (summer). also Earth's axis tilt causes …light rays to spread and our rotation around our axis causes the darkness when the part of the Earth turns away from the sun.
due to the earths tilt and its elliptical orbit about the sun
There is no place on earth where the relative lengths of day and night don't change through the year. Our guess is that you're thinking of the Equator. The equator is the …line on which the variations in day/night during the year are the smallest; but they still change, even on the equator. Here's what happens on the equator: March 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hours March 21 - June 21: Day shrinking, night growing. June 21 - September 21: Day growing, night shrinking September 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hours September 21 - December 21: Day shrinking, night growing. December 21 - March 21: Day growing, night shrinking.
The earths tilt makes the sun get lower in the winter and taller in the summer. In the orbit of the sun the north hemisphere has different seasons then the south hemisphere.
That all depends on where you are on the moon. At the equator, the average daytime temperature is 242 degrees Fahrenheit. At 85 degrees north, the temperature gets as high… as -46 degrees Fahrenheit.
Daylight starts and ends with the centre of the Sun theoretically at a zenith distance of 90 degrees 50 minutes. It is more than 90 degrees to allow for atmospheric refrac…tion and also because the top edge of the visible Sun must be level with the horizon. The length of daylight depends on the Sun's declination and the observer's latitude. When these two factors are equal the Sun passes overhead at midday.
The Sun is directly above the Equator so daylight hours = nighttime hours.
