说明: 为何火箭发射烟尘的影子会直指月亮呢?在2001年初,亚特兰提斯太空梭发射时,太阳地球月亮和推进火箭都恰好排成一直线,造就了这个值得拍照留存的景观。首先,要让太空梭的烟尘投射出长长的阴影,时间要是在日出日落附近。只有在这种时分,影子最长且向地平线伸展。最后,如果又恰逢满月之时,太阳月亮分落在天空的两侧;当落日刚没入地平面时,在另一端的天空,月亮会恰好浮出地平面。也因此,随着亚特兰提斯号 在满月那天的日落后发射升空,推射火箭烟尘的影子,就直指东方刚升起的满月

Explanation: Why would the shadow of a rocket's launch plume point toward the Moon? In early 2001 during a launch of the space shuttle Atlantis,the Sun,Earth,Moon,and rocket were all properly aligned forthis photogenic coincidence. First, for thespace shuttle's plume to cast a long shadow,the time of day must be either nearsunrise orsunset. Only then will theshadowbe its longest and extend all the way to thehorizon. Finally, during aFull Moon, theSun andMoon are onopposite sides of the sky. Just aftersunset, for example, the Sun is slightly below thehorizon, and,in the other direction, the Moon is slightly above the horizon. Therefore, asAtlantis blasted off, just aftersunset,its shadow projected away from the Sun toward the opposite horizon, where theFull Moon happened to be.
