When viewing an object at night explain why an observer would look to one side of it rather than looking directly at it?
The rods are positioned off-axis and are much more sensitive than the cones, so it is the rods that we use under extremely low light levels when hunting for faint deep-sky objects. The trick therefore to seeing very faint objects is to look slightly to one side rather than straight at them.
What percentage of the night sky can we see?
Putting aside the curvature of the Earth and refraction and terrain and so forth, we can say that at any moment, half the sky is available to view. Over the course of 24 hours, the percentage of the entire celestial sphere that’s available to view varies from 50% (at the poles) to 100% (at the equator).
Can you tell the time or direction by just observing the sky?
Answer: The sun always rises in the east and sets in the west, therefore you can tell what the time is just by looking at the sun’s location in the sky. These times will vary slightly depending if you are in Standard time or Daylight Savings time, and also where you are located in your time zone.
Why is it better to look at faint stars and comets slightly off Centre rather than looking directly at them?
Away from the centre are rod cells, which are responsible for black-and-white vision, and work better than the cone cells at low light levels. Looking off to one side allows more light from faint objects to strike the rod cells, and become visible to us.
Why can I not look at the sky?
Your eyes can adjust to that much better than a regular camera, but they can only go so far. So when you look at a cloudy sky, you may not be looking at the sun directly, but it can still be too bright. You’ll be straining, pushing the limits of your eyes’ ability to block the excess light.
Why can’t I see stars when I look directly at them?
Why do I see stars when I look to the side?
Stars disappear when you look directly at them because of the anatomy of the photoreceptors in your retina. When you look right at something that is small or far away, the image falls on a part of your retina where there are only cones.
What do Phosphenes look like?
The part of your eyeball directly in front of the retina contains vitreous, a gel-like substance that helps your eye keep its shape. There are also tiny, very thin fibers in the vitreous. When these fibers pull on your retina or the gel rubs against your retina, you may see stars.
Why do I see black squiggly lines?
Phosphenes are flashes of colorful light that are produced from inside the eye rather than from an outside light source. Some people report that phosphenes look like rapidly moving stars, or shapes of color that wander slowly across your vision.
What does Photopsia look like?
They may look to you like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes and appear to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid.
