How do we see even if sun is not visible in cloudy day?
Asked by Neharica | 17th Aug, 2014, 12:24: PM
Whenever sunlight falls on the atmosphere, part of it is transmitted, part is absorbed and part is scattered or reflected by the clouds.
Hence, 100% light is never reflected back in space. The clouds scatter the light on earth and so, we are still able to see even if there are clouds.
The only thing changes is the brightness of light. If it is very cloudy, then the brightness of light is very less, but light is still present in the atmosphere and due to which we are able to see.
