In the morning, the Sun appears low in the sky; objects cast long shadows. 

As Earth rotates, the Sun appears higher in the sky, and the shadows get shorter.

At noon, with the Sun overhead, objects cast short shadows or no shadow at all.

As Earth continues to rotate and the Sun appears lower in the sky toward evening, the shadows get longer again.
