Light is energy that can take on many forms. Radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X-ray and gamma radiation are all different forms of light. (Illustration: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

I love talking about the electromagnetic spectrum. There is so much more to it than visible light... and electromagnetic radiation is so darned useful.

Schemochromes: the physics of structural plumage colors

Wavelength: lambda: the distance between any point on a wave and the corresponding point on the next crest (trough) of the wave; distance the wave travels during one cycle; expressed in meters, nanometers, micrometers, picometers m) or angstroms

Scorpius in Red and Blue Image Credit & Copyright: John Davis Since bright stars tend to radiate strongly in the blue portion of the visible spectrum, and the interstellar dust scatters blue light more strongly than red, the dusty reflection nebulae tend to be blue. Lovely examples are the wispy blue reflection nebulae near bright, hot stars Pi and Delta Scorpii (upper left and lower right) in this telescopic skyscape from the head of the constellation Scorpius.

The constellation Scorpio in the red and blue spectrum showing beautiful nebulae.

violet energy-The difference between violet and purple is that violet appears in the visible light spectrum, or rainbow, whereas purple is simply a mix of red and blue. Violet has the highest vibration in the visible spectrum.

The Violet Flame of Transformation is a gift of Holy Grace from Spirit facilitated by Ascended Master Saint Germaine and Archangel Zadkiel. Call upon them and the energy of the violet flame when you are in need of special clearing through divine grace.

yes.....a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes.....it's mysterious, beautiful, complex just like the heart....and the human condition......

Yes, a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes. It's mysterious, beautiful, complex just like the heart, & the human condition.

To convert a frequency to wavelength, we divide the “speed of light” by the frequency. Conversely, to convert a wavelength to frequency, we divide the “speed of light” by the wavelength.  To convert the middle audio octave to light (wavelength) we must first raise the note (frequency) forty octaves (frequency times 2, forty times).  Example: To convert middle A (440 Hz)to its corresponding wavelength in the visible spectrum....

Many languages do not differentiate between certain colors on the visible spectrum and do not have separate terms for blue and green.
