electromagnetic theory of light
1. The theory which states that electromagnetic and light waves have identical properties.
2. The theory that light consists of electromagnetic radiation and therefore obeys Maxwell's equations; contrasted with earlier concepts that light was a stream of tiny particles or light was a wave in a medium of ether.

Maxwell's equations consists of the four fundamental equations that describe the behavior of electric and magnetic fields in time and space and the dependence of these fields on the distribution and behavior of electric charges and currents.

These four partial differential equations relate to the electric and magnetic fields to their sources, charge density, and current density.

electronic flash, flashtube, strobe light
1. A flash lamp, usually attached to a camera or housed within the camera body, which produces brilliant flashes of light by the discharge of electric current through a gas-filled tube.
2. A high-intensity flashing beam of light produced by charging a capacitor to a very high voltage then discharging it as a high-intensity flash of light in a tube.
3. A lamp that produces very short, intense flashes of light by means of an electric discharge in a gas.

The ability of strobe lights, or electronic flashes, to "freeze" the motion of rapidly moving objects by making them visible for only a fraction of a second makes them very useful in photography and in measuring vibration and other types of high-speed motion.

Red-Light District
1. Relating to the part of a town or city where brothels and other commercial sex-based activities are concentrated.

Encarta World English Dictionary.

2. An area or district in a city in which many houses of prostitution are located [1890-95; allegedly so called because brothels displayed red lights].

At least in the U.S., some say the origin of the red light comes from the red lanterns carried by railway workers, which were left outside brothels when the workers entered, so that they could be quickly located when the trains were ready to leave.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

light-year, light-years; light year, light years
The distance traveled by a beam of light in a vacuum in one year, approximately 9.46 trillion (million million) kilometers or 5.99 trillion miles.

An an average speed of 186,291 miles or 299,792 kilometers, per second; which equals approximately 5.88 trillion miles or 9.4607 trillion kilometers, or 63,246 astronomical units.

The light-year is also divided into light-minutes and light-seconds; for example, the moon is 1.3 light-seconds from the earth; the sun is 8.3 light-minutes away from the earth.

Although a light-year is a measurement of distance and not time, it does imply time; such as, the light from a star that is ten light-years from the earth takes ten years to reach the earth; so, an observer on earth is seeing the star as it appeared ten years ago.
