Question

Explain why the planets do not twinkle?


Solution

The planets are closer to the earth and appear as tiny disks in the sky. Their apparent sizes are usually larger than the pockets of air that would distort their light, so the diffractions cancel out thereby nullifying the twinkling effect.
