What is the difference between a Moon roof and Sun roof if any?
A sunroof is opaque (usually flush metal with the body color on the outside). This roof can either tilt open to vent, slide open to let in light, or both. It is called a sunroof because the opacity prevents the sun from heating up the vehicle. These have existed for quite some time.
In the 1970s, Ford introduced a glass sunroof that they named the Moonroof (actually, the American Sunroof Company, the company that made all domestic sunroofs and now known as American Specialty Cars invented it, but Ford was the first to install it). So to answer the question, a moonroof is a sunroof made of glass.
The problem is, the distinction is becoming lost as more and more people use it incorrectly. Most people today just consider any sort of hole in the roof a sunroof. But in the strictest sense, sunroof=metal, moonroof=glass.
Many think that a sunroof is clear and a moonroof is tinted. Nope, not the right answer. Others think that a sunroof will open but a moonroof will not. Wrong again. The truth is that a moonroof is actually a type of sunroof! For more info, I'm deferring to an expert, Marc Levinson of Donmar Sunroofs, who also operates the free sunroof information site.
Here it is: Just as a sedan is a distinctive type of automobile, a moonroof is a type of sunroof. Sunroof is the generic term used to describe any panel in a vehicle roof which can let in light and/or air.
The term moonroof was used in the 70's to describe a glass panel inbuilt electric sunroof, and is now used generically to describe all glass panel inbuilt sunroofs. An inbuilt sunroof is one where the operable panel slides between the vehicle roof and headliner, and is often powered but may be manually operated"
The Moon has a greater effect on earth's tides than the sun because the moon is much closer to the earth than the sun. The sun's mass is much larger than the moon's, but the moon is a lot closer and tidal forces are generated not by the effect of gravity at a point due to the sun/moon, but by the difference between the effects of gravity on opposite sides of the earth. As the…
What is the difference in right ascension between the Moon and the Sun when the Moon is at quarter phase?
During a solar eclipse the Moon come between the Sun and Earth casting a shadow on the Earth. During a lunar eclipse the Earth blocks the sunlight from illuminating the Moon. A lunar eclipse is when the earth moves between the moon and the sun to make a shadow on the moon, a solar eclipse is where the moon gets between the earth and the sun and causes a shadow on the earth.
A tide with the smallest difference between low and high tides is called a neap tide. It occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned such that the angle of the Sun and Earth is 90 degrees with respect to the angle of the Earth and the Moon. This is because the gravitational attraction of the Sun and Moon tend to cancel each other out at that angle.
A solar eclipse is where the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. A lunar eclipse is where the Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun. See links for more information They are different because a Lunar eclipse is in the position of Sun Moon Earth. A Solar eclipse is in the position of Sun Earth Moon. That is the deference of A Lunar eclipse and a Solar eclipse.
Lunar eclipses occurs at a full moon when Earth is directly between the moon an the sun and also occurs only when there is a full moon because the moon is closet to Earth,s shadow at that time while a solar eclipses occur when the moon passes directly between Earth and the sun, blocking sunlight from Earth and only occurs when a new moon blocks your view of the sun.
Solar eclipses are when the moon travels in between the sun and the earth, creating a circular shadow on the Earth's surface, temporarily. (Don't stare at the moon during solar eclipses!) Lunar eclipses are when the earth gets in between the moon and the sun, creating a shadow over the moon, temporarily.
