1. FIRST ANSWER IS THE CORRECT ANSWER 2. The light in the Earth's umbra is reddish in 3. color because 4. (1) of scattering of the blue component of sunlight 5. by its atmosphere, much more than the red component 6. (2) the blue component of sunlight is refracted (bent) 7. much more strongly than the red component and gets 8. absorbed by the ground 9. (3) in space sunlight is actually reddish 10. (4) NVA 11. (5) NVA 12. 13. 14. 15. The Moon's nodes are the points where the Moon's orbit crosses the 16. (1) ecliptic plane 17. (2) Earth's equatorial plane 18. (3) galactic plane 19. (4) NVA 20. (5) NVA 21. 22. 23. 24. The line of nodes that has to be near the Sun for eclipses to be possible is 25. centered on the 26. (1) Earth 27. (2) Moon 28. (3) point midway between the Earth and Moon

Unformatted text preview: 29. 30. A solar eclipse can only occur when the Moon is 31. (1) at the new phase and near a node 32. (2) at the full phase and near a node 33. (3) at one of the nodes regardless of phase 34. 35. 36. 37. The reason we don't have a solar eclipse at every new Moon and a lunar eclipse 38. at every full Moon is 39. that the Moon's orbit plane is 40. (1) tilted 5 degrees with respect to the ecliptic plane 41. (2) tilted 5 degrees with respect to the Earth's equator 42. (3) aligned with the Earth's equator 43. (4) NVA 44. (5) NVA 45. 46. 47. 48. A lunar eclipse can only occur when the Moon is 49. (1) at the full phase and near a node 50. (2) at the new phase and near a node 51. (3) at one of the nodes regardless of phase 52. (4) NVA...
