Re: stars on your fan

what an excellent idea..
i have to admit, i had stars on the wall opposite my bed, and i would come home all sloppy drunk--the stars would make me so sick. i would get seasick just watching them. it was bad news.. i miss them though.

does anyone know the actual reason that when you stare at those stars in the dark, that only the ones that you're staring directly at seem to fade away and then disappear? maybe it's just me...

Science lesson time!

When you look at something directly, you mainly use the "cones" on your retina. The cones are more concentrated in the center of your field of view, and they are responsible for colour vision. Around the edge of your vision, you mostly rely on the "rods" which are not colour sensitive, but are used in low-light conditions. Therefore your periphial vision has better "night vision" abilities. That is why when you look at a faint star in the sky, you can see it better if you don't stare directly at it. And you'll notice that if you switch a faint point of light from the edge of your vision to staring directly at it, it will seem that the light disappears...

knew those biology classes would come in handy...

PhilosoPossum: well said! i am learning all that shit this year and its great to hear someone else saying it for a change......... and in conclusion it is best to look to the side of an object if you want to see it in the dark..
