The moon reflects the sun's light, and it cannot help but be the same. Why a non luminous flame does not give out much light? A very hot flame may radiate more in the invisible, ultraviolet. Free charged particle acceleration. Light can also be produced by the acceleration of a free charged particle, such as an light emission is known as Bremsstrahlung or 'braking radiation'. The emission is characteristically seen in X-ray emission tubes which work by accelerating electrons with a high voltage and then by decelerating them very fast by directing them onto a metal target.   This spectrum was taken by the ASCA satellite. It is an X-ray spectrum of a supernova remnant (SNR), which is a huge cloud of gaseous matter swept up from the explosion of a massive star. The x-axis shows the range of energy of light that is being emitted (the units are keV, or kilo-electron Volts, which are the common units astronomers use to talk about X-ray light).

This type of spectrum is called an emission spectrum because what you are seeing is the direct radiation emitted by the source. In the case of the Sun, light is emitted at almost all energies in the visible spectrum, which is why you see all of the colors in the Sun's spectrum. NYPD Red chases a ruthless murderer with an uncontrollable lust for money–and blood. It’s another glamorous night in the heart of Manhattan: at a glitzy movie premiere, a gorgeous starlet, dressed to the nines and dripping in millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry on loan, makes her way past a . In an arc light, the light is concentrated at the electrode. As the power of an arc light is increased its color changes from yellow-white to white to blue-white. The sharp discontinuities in the nature of the light from an electric discharge as it switches from a red glow to a bright arc explain many of the mysteries of starlight.

The lux (symbol: lx) is the SI derived unit of illuminance, measuring luminous flux per unit area. It is equal to one lumen per square metre. In photometry, this is used as a measure of the intensity, as perceived by the human eye, of light that hits or passes through a surface. It is analogous to the radiometric unit watt per square metre, but with the power at each wavelength weighted. Emission Line Spectra occurs when light passes through a HOT LOW-DENSITY (Cloud/Gas) energy source through a prism. Upward spikes of intensity are present for this graph, spectra are bright lines on a dark background. This occurs when atoms emit (lose photons), when they go down energy levels.   Light produced from objects that are hot (like a filament) creates a spectrum of colors that is smooth and follows a bell curve. At around 5, degrees Celsius an object looks white because the spectrum centers around yellow with lesser amounts of green, blue, purple at smaller wavelengths, and lesser amounts of orange and red at longer wavelengths.
