Rayleigh Scattering Sunset Egg
Item # P2-1000
Explain why the sky is blue during the day but yellow, red, orange, and purple at sunset! Amaze your students with this opalescent glass egg that acts like a little piece of the sky.
The mesmerizing "Sunset Egg" is a captivating fusion of art and science that brings the ethereal beauty of a sunset right into the palm of your hand. This opalescent glass egg is not just a decorative paperweight, but a tangible demonstration of the fascinating phenomenon known as Rayleigh scattering.
Inspired by the scientific brilliance of Lord Rayleigh, this egg demonstrates the phenomenon that shorter wavelengths of light, like blue and violet, scatter more while allowing longer wavelengths, such as the warm reds and oranges, to predominate. As light enters the egg's surface, it's refracted and dispersed, creating an enchanting visual display reminiscent of the very sunset skies that inspire awe in us all.
