The earth is 149.600.000 km away from the sun and the speed of light is 299 792.458 kilometres / second, therefore, it would take sunlight, on average, 8 minutes and 20 seconds to reach earth.
Now, imagine the following scenario, which I think we can all relate to: you are at the beach and the sun is shining, what a wonderful day! But no, suddenly clouds appear and bye-bye good time, because the sun gets in the clouds. Some time passes, and you can see the sun coming out of the clouds, and the second this happens, you feel the warm embrace of our extraordinary favourite star.
My question is, from what I said in the beginning, sunlight travels to earth in 8 minutes and 20 seconds, however, we immediately feel it when the sun gets out of the clouds, why is that? Because from what I can see, it should take 8 minutes and 20 seconds
