Group S Luminous Objects

Luminous Objects

A luminous object is one that gives off light. In other words, it glows (or shines) of its own accord. To be able to glow, the object must have its own source of energy.
Luminous objects are responsible for our vision.
In complete darkness we cannot see/distinguish the different objects around us.
Human eye perceives the light reflecting from different objects to cause the sensation of vision.
In order to reflect (bounce back, come back) from different objects, we must make the light to fall on the objects.
Light is generated/emitted/produced/comes from only luminous objects. Thus luminous objects are responsible for our vision.
Example - Example: Lighted candle, torch bulb, the sun and stars.
In order to emit light, the object must have its own source of energy. A torch shines because of the chemical energy stored in its batteries, whereas all stars shine using energy created by nuclear fusion
Sun also emits light as a result of fusion of Hydrogen atoms. Hence they are considered as Luminous objects.

Let me introduce to our new topic which is called Luminous objects and its all about that anything which can make its own light. There are two types of luminous objects
1: Non luminous objects do not make their own light (such as:Earth, bricks, plastic, metals, moon, planets and mirrors)
2: Luminous objects do make thier own light (such as:Stars ,Lighted candle,Sparks,Bulbs,Flames,Heating coils and TV Screens)

Anything objects which can produce light is an luminous objects however any object which cant produce light is an non luminous object also objects which emit there own heat and light are called luminous objects.Image result for the most luminous object in the universe
Although quasars appear faint when viewed from Earth, they are visible from extreme distances because quasars are the most luminous objects in the known universe. The quasar that appears brightest in the sky is 3C 273 in the constellation of Virgo.
