The correct answer is A
The correct answer is A.
The moon is full when it is opposite the earth from the sun. The
moon rises just after sunset. On rare occasions, the moon enters
earth's shadow and is eclipsed by the earth's shadow. However,
moon's orbit is inclined to the earth's orbit by about 5 degrees, that
the moon usually misses the earth's shadow. For the last
photo from WWC of an eclipsed moon, please see the Phys
Photo of the Week for Oct. 29, 2004.
Animated time-lapse of the anti-sunset
In the animated
sequence you can see the shadow creeping up from the lowe elevations
off into the sky and eventually the rising moon. The last frame
of the sequence is a little brighter merely from re-setting the
exposure settings on the camera. The sequence consists of a new
image approximately every 30 seconds, but played back at one image
every half second to produce a playback 60 times real time.
