Have you wondered why the sky is blue? Why the sunset is red? How hummingbirds show us their many colors? Why the road ahead sometimes seems to have water on it, when it does not? Have you wondered how telescopes work to give a magnified image of distant objects? How do microscopes provide a magnified image of close objects? How do spectroscopes, eye glasses, cameras, binoculars, and similar instruments work? How do the simple rear view mirrors in cars dim and provide wide fields of view? In this book, William L. Wolfe attempts to describe many of the natural phenomena caused by light, and the optical devices that use it in terms everyone can understand.
