NASA KSNN What changes a shadow's size?
Light is a form of energy. It interacts with matter, or the material that makes up an object, in different ways based upon the qualities of that material. Light passes through objects that are transparent. These items appear to be clear. Materials that are translucent let some light pass through, but this light is scattered. These items look milky or fuzzy. Some materials are reflective, or bounce light back. Reflective items are shiny. And objects that are opaque block the light.
