A football match is being played at night in a stadium with flood lights ON. You can see the shadow of a football kept at the ground but cannot see its shadow when it is kicked high in the air. Explain.

Shadow of football lying on the ground can be seen because the ground acts as a screen for it. However, when the football is kicked high into the air it will be away from the ground, the shadow disappears with height hence we cannot see the shadow of the football when it is in air.
