What are the lights in the uninhabited regions of western Australia caused by?Wildfires. These images were assembled from data acquired over nine days in April 2012 and 13 days in October 2012. This means fires and other lighting (such as ships) could have been detected on any one day and integrated into the composite picture, despite being temporary phenomena - giving the the appearance of a massive blaze.Created by: globalquiz.orgNASA riddles »hard 55% large citieslarge cities1779wildfireswildfires4888oil drillsoil drills1022open-pit minesopen-pit mines1191 Why is this camera kept in white protective case?To reduce solar heating.

This method allows most cameras to maintain the full function of electronic and mechanical communication with the normally mounted lens, for features such as open-aperture metering.Created by: Shankar Kumarlens riddles »average 67% panoramicpanoramic992nightnight380high-speedhigh-speed383macromacro3608 What is the easiest way to see this photo in 3-D?Use red and cyan glasses. This is anaglyph 3D, an image which contains two differently filtered colored images, one for each eye. Red/Cyan channels are the most common, but Magenta/Green and Blue/Yellow are also popular.

The iris plays no role in the effect, but the blue-eyed people have relatively low melanin in the fundus as well. Therefore, they show a much stronger red-eye effect, as the light passing fundus is not absorbed by melanin. The role of melanin in red-eye effect is nicely demonstrated in case of heterochromia (one eye blue, one brown): typically, only the blue eye displays the effect.Created by: Kantapat Rassameeeyes riddles »hard 57% blue-eyed peopleblue-eyed people2883brown-eyed peoplebrown-eyed people751elderselders79there is no differencethere is no difference1338 Why do cats have vertical pupils?To better see in the dark. The sharpest image is produced by round pupils, and if cats weren’t nocturnal, they probably would have round pupils like us. But the vertical pupil, in combination with horizontal eyelids, gives the cat greater and more accurate control in different types of lighting. A cat may adjust the amount of light by moving eyelids only.Created by: globalquiz.orgoptics riddles »easy 76% to have sharper visionto have sharper vision2961to better see in the darkto better see in the dark12441to be more attractiveto be more attractive217it is a useless mutationit is a useless mutation567 Which of the following objects did not appear on the early photographs, because they had been too difficult to capture?People.

He depicted a pedestrian who stopped for a shoe shine, taking a photo of Paris streets.Created by: globalquiz.orghistory of photography riddles »average 62% buildingsbuildings685naturenature534peoplepeople3657panoramaspanoramas994 Which of the following camera lenses are typically more expensive?F/1.8. The smaller the f-number, the larger relative aperture there is, and that means more light for the exposure. Each aperture has half the light gathering area of the previous one.Created by: karate kidtechnology riddles »hard 55% f/1.8f/1.83614f/2.4f/2.4495f/2.8f/2.8782f/3.5f/3.51599 What term would photographers use to describe the quality of blurred part of the photo?

The term comes from Japanese for "blur".Created by: globalquiz.orgtechnology riddles »very hard 33% diffractiondiffraction1512bokehbokeh1545outfieldoutfield899overexposureoverexposure589 Which resource used to be greatly consumed by the photo processing industry before the age of digital photography?Silver.
