How can one side of the earth be dark and the other side be sunnY?
Because one side faces the Sun and time changes as it turns.
The main thing to remember is that the Earth is a sphere. It's the same sort of shape as a basketball. The Earth blocks out the Sun so it can't light the side of Earth facing away from the Sun. A simple experiment: Take a ball and hold it to a light. The half of the ball facing the light will be lit up and the other side will be dark. Rotate the ball and… Read More
1. The axis is a tilted line that goes thought the earth so this means on one side it is dark and colder than the sunny side that is warm. This mean the dark side is winter and the sunny side is summer. sho dj decks
Full moon means the sun is on one side of the earth and the moon is on the other. Sometimes the moon passes through the shadow of the earth at the moment of full moon. If you are on the sunny side of the earth (daytime!), you can't see the eclipse; if you are on the dark side of the earth (night!), you can see it.
when Earth rotates on its axis then one side of the Earth turns toward sun and the other part is at dark side.so we experience dark.
The moon, like the Earth, is illuminated on one side by the sun, while the other side is dark.
The Sun is a single source of light. Therefore it can only shine its light on one side of the Earth at a time. The other side is then obviously dark. Try shining a torch on a tennis ball in a dark room. One side will by light and the other side will be dark.Apart from the dark and light part,there is also a part that is fairly dark known as the prenumbra. dark-umbra fairly… Read More
The temperature differs on the moon because as it rotates, one side becomes sunny and the other dark. The sunny, or 'day' side will have very high temperatures because it is close to the sun, and the dark, or 'night', side of the moon will have lower temperatures because it is further away.
If the world was more titled the world would be dark and cold on one side and sunny and warm on the other side.
Well, as you know the earth rotates for 24 hours. During the day half the earth is sunny and the other half is night. So Canada (where i live) would rotate to the other side. And the 'other side' doesn't have any light Hope that helped
Not from Earth. Now if by the dark side, you mean the actual dark side, the one facing away from the Sun, then you cannot see it just as you cannot see any dark body. If by the dark side, you mean the side facing away from Earth (the far side), then you can send spacecraft to see the other side. That would cost a lot of time and money.
No. All sides of the moon are light 50% of the time, and dark 50% of the time.
There is no "dark side" of the moon. Every place on the moon is light for 50% of the time and dark for the other 50% of the time, just as on earth. There is a "far side" of the moon ... the part we never see from earth. That side is generally rougher and more heavily cratered than the side that faces us.
Because the earth rotate to the other side of the galaxy where the sun is not pointing to the earth but the moon is pointing at the earth
Because the dark side of the moon is facing us, and the sun is shining on the other side of it.
The dark side of the moon much like pink. Floyd sings about
because the earth spins while its rotating around the sun, so in the northern hemisphere its light, and southern hemisphere is dark!
That refers to the side that can't be seen from Earth. The Moon has a bound rotation, meaning that we always see the the same side (more or less; but read about "libration" for more details). The "dark side of the Moon" is not really darker than the other side; it simply refers to the fact that we can't see it from Earth. That refers to the side that can't be seen from Earth. The… Read More
It is called the dark side of the moon because it never faces the earth, this is caused by the fact that the moon's rotation is the same number of days as it's revolution around the earth. Even though it is called the dark side of the moon it still is as bright as the front side. __________________________ There is no "dark side of the Moon"; the entire Moon has a day-night cycle of 29… Read More
No. The part of the moon that you can't see from earth is always the same part. But regarding light and dark, every point on the moon is in sunlight for half the time and in dark for the other half of the time, just as on the earth.
I may not be right but I think because the moon moves it makes a dark side on the earth so the earth does not need one. Also one side if the earth can not be dark all the time!! The. It would be might all the time!
The sun doesn't go anywhere as Earth orbits the sun. It appears dark because the Earth revolves and the face which was facing the Sun would now be on the other side.
There is No light and dark side to the Earth. The Earth rotates in 24 hours, every day. You are Probably thinking of the Moon. The Moon has a light and dark side, because only one side always faces the Earth, and the other side always faces away from the Earth. The first human beings were the first people to see the light side of the Moon. The Russians sent a satellite to orbit the… Read More
The sunny side gets extremely hot. The dark side gets extremely cold.
...The sun revolves around the earth.....if its night on one side its day on the other....
There are two reasons: 1. At any given time, one side of the Moon is dark because it's facing away from the Sun. 2. The rotation of the Moon in relation to its orbit around the Earth keeps the same side always facing the Earth. We NEVER see the other side.
Literally there is a far side of the moon being the side we don't see from Earth. But it's not always dark. You will notice you can always see the same craters on the moon every night from where you live, you never get to see the other side. Abstractly it could mean the side we see is referred to as 'good' and the other side 'evil' so the dark side of the moon is… Read More
The side continuously facing the Earth is called the "Bright Side", while the side that never faces the Earth is called the "Dark Side", even though during half of the Moon's orbit around the Earth the "Dark Side" faces the Sun.
when it rotates the other side goes dark and the side facing the sn goes bright this is day and night
Half of the earth is always dark because the Earth is opaque and the side facing the sun blocks sunlight from reaching the other side of the Earth. If we were in a star system with multiple stars we might have a chance of having more than half of the surface of the Earth illuminated but as we only have the one sun we will always have day and night. Note that strictly speaking the… Read More
What moon lies between the sun and earth so the side of the moon facing earth is dark and the moon is not visible?
The New Moon is when the lit side of the moon is facing away from Earth, and only the dark side is visible.
A2. The Moon keeps one side locked towards Earth. Thus whether it were illuminated or not, we can never see the far side of the Moon. Incidentally, there is a marvellous movie of the complete Lunar cycle under Moon/Tidal effects in Wikipedia. A1. The sun casts a light on one side of the moon and the other side is a dark shadow. So if there is a half moon, for example, from earth, we can… Read More
The side of the moon we see is properly called the "near side" as we always see this face. The other side, facing away from the earth, is the "far side". As different regions of the moon see sunlight as it orbits the earth, it is usually incorrect to call any side the "dark side"
The dark season or night time.
Not necessarily. The night is dark, because the sun sets. The sun literally passes to the other side of the planet. (More correctly, the Earth rotates, causing the perceived position of the Sun to go to the other side.) Also, thick clouds can block starlight and moonlight from reaching the Earth, with the effect that they can cause the night to appear dark.
It is always in the sky but when it is dark on one side of the earth, the sun is up on the other side. So yes, the sun is always up.
From Earth - never. The far side - or dark side - is never viewable from Earth because the Earth and the Moon are tidally locked, so one face of the Moon is always facing the Earth. To view the "dark side of the Moon", you need to go into space to view it.
The "near" side of the moon is the side that always faces Earth. The "far" side of the moon can only be seen from space. The dark side of the moon is the title of a Pink Floyd album. There is no side of the moon that is always dark.
there would be sun on one side and dark on the other uhhh but im not sure this is right
Earth does have a dark side. When you are on that dark side it is called night. Both Earth and the moon get their light from the sun. Since they are both spherical and there is only one sun in our solar system, the sun can only light up half of each object at a time.
The Moon always shows us the same side; the other side can't be seen from Earth. This is used as a metaphore.
That is because you are looking at the moon from only one side, and the moon does not rotate, so therefor, we don't see the dark side of the moon.
the sun is visible because it takes the earh 24 hrs to go around the sun and when one side of the earth is faceing the sun the other side of the earth is dark

If the sun was still there, but the earth stopped spinning relative to it so that one side was always facing the sun and one side always facing away (in darkness), then the sunny side would get very hot - too hot to live, while the dark side would become too cold to live. Vegitation, animals and the whole food chain would die out on the dark side, as the sun is needed for plants… Read More
dark side of the moon
You probably mean the far side, not the dark side: There is no "dark side of the moon". Every point on the moon is illuminated for roughly 50% of the time, just like every point on earth. So sometimes the far side is light, and sometimes it's dark. Just like the near side. None of the Apollo missions landed or traveled to the far side of the moon ... the side that's invisible from earth… Read More
Not at all. Every place on the moon is in sunlight for half the time and in dark for the other half, just like every place on earth. And just like on earth, at any moment in time, half of it is in sunlight and the other half of it is in darkness. And just like on the earth, as it rotates, places keep slipping from light into dark, and other places keep slipping from… Read More

Actually you can only see the whole moon in space. On earth you can only see about half. No, Just the half of it. That's what the term "dark side of the Moon" stands for. The "dark side" of the Moon is the side unseen from Earth. The moon rotates on its axis once in the time that it take for it to orbit the Earth at this time of its history. The result is… Read More
The Earth would be very hot on the sunny side and very cold on the night side. nothig
