Light Speed Trivia: Week 3

To shine a spotlight on our new holiday experience Galaxy Lights, presented by Reliant and our fall exhibit Playing with Light, our November trivia theme is light. Do you know the answer to this week’s Light Speed Trivia?

About how long does it take the Sun’s light to reach Earth?

Sunlight travels at the speed of light. Photons emitted from the surface of the Sun need to travel across the vacuum of space to reach our eyes, which takes an average of about 8.3 minutes.
