Where is my shadow?
Yes!! This can happen to you also, if you are living in a location between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
On Tuesday. Zero Shadow Day is celestial phenomenon wherein vertical objects won’t have any shadow for brief period of time, according to multiple reports.
To celebrate this, we are organizing a public talk followed by hands-on activities to demonstrate Zero Shadow Day at My Home Bhooja premises.
The Earth revolves around the Sun once in 365 days. Due to the 23.4° tilt of the Earth’s axis of rotation, the Sun seems to be moving from North to South and then back north, every year. it turns its direction at the Tropics (“trope” in Greek means to turn). Due to this apparent motion of the Sun, the places between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn witness the Sun directly overhead twice in a year – once ( 90
– degree angle to the earth surface ) while it apparently moves South, and next while it moves North. At noon on any day when the Sun is not directly overhead, our shadow falls either towards the South or towards the North. But, on the day when the sun is directly overhead, at noon the shadow is exactly below you. This phenomenon is known as the Zero Shadow Day. IN HYDERABAD May 9th and August 3rd and this was celebrated by SPACEADHYAAN
On May 9th around 12:12 pm where all shadows vanish for a few minutes. This annual celestial phenomenon occurs twice a year for places between +23.5 and -23.5 degrees latitude.
