    Q.

    The Sun always rises in the East (sunrise) and sets in the West (sunset). This movement across the sky directly affects shadows in two ways: size and direction. Shadows are opposite the light source, so when the sun rises in the East, shadows point west. By evening, when the sun is setting in the West, shadows are pointing East. When the sun is low (morning and evening), shadows are long and stretched out. When the sun is high (midday), shadows are short.


    Look at the diagram of the shadows baed on the pole. Which is the best description for the shadows occurring from noon to 3:00pm?

    answer choices

    The shadows are getting shorter before sunrise.

    The shadows are getting longer before sunset.
