#6 Bright And Beautiful!
There isn't any dark side of our satellite, Moon. The dark side of the moon which is not seen by humans is considered unlit by the sun. On the contrary, it is our limitation to see the Moon entirely.The earth and moon revolve simultaneously and also around the axis of the Sun which is why we see only one side of our satellite although the rays of the Sun reach all parts. There is no dark side in reality!
#5 The Shape Cannot Be Lined Out Perfectly!
The shape of our planet Earth is quite different from what we have imagined till date. It is quite known that the shape isn't a perfect square or flat but, circular. To be precise, the Earth is slightly flattened at the poles and widened at the equator. Also, the surface of the Earth is constantly changing due to the motion of tectonic plates and erosion. To sum up, the shape is somewhat like a potato or a pear.
#4 Yellow or White?
We have always colored our Sun as yellow-orange since, childhood. The Sun appears to have different colors which change from yellow to orange to reddish in color in the entire day. But the truth behind the clouds is that the Sun is actually white in color. The reason behind this is only yellow part of the spectrum is able to cross the atmospheric barrier and reach the Earth and rest of the light of shorter wavelengths of other colors are diffracted This also explains to us why our sky is blue during the day and black at night.
