A point light source throws just a simple “umbra” shadow. The area in which only part of the light source can be blocked is a “penumbra.” There will be several shadows when there is more than one light source and mixed areas will be darker as well as different variations of brightness or even color.

The more intense the illumination, the smoother and invisible the shadow contours become until they are gone. There are few clear shadows of the light of an overcast sky.

The outline of the shadow zones can be calculated by tracing the light rays produced by the outermost areas of the extended source of light. No direct light is obtained from any portion of a light source in the umbra area and it is the darkest. A viewer in the umbra area cannot see any light source directly.

Shadow as a term is often used for occlusion or distortion, not just for light. A rain shadow, for example, is a dry region beyond the range of the mountain in terms of the predominant wind direction; the high ground prevents rain clouds from reaching the dry zone. There is an acoustic shadow if the direct sound is obscured or distorted around a particular area.
