  • UV light change colors?

    Was tying up some midges and used a peacock herl for collar and put some sally han over it. After hitting it with the UV light, swear the herl looks purple. Anyone ever notice this or are my eyes so bad I'm registering hues off the spectrum.
    We are the music-makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World losers and world forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams.

    That is a common side effect from drinking too much of this.

      Visible light theoretically starts at 400 nanometers. UV light is <400 nanometers. However as with all things health related one person's out of range is another person's normal. So it is possible your vision, due to the apparent hard core vodka intake, is able to pick up some light below the 400 nanometer list of otherwise "normal" humans.

        Could also be a lingering effect of some of the fungus you have collected and eaten lately.

        But - peacock herl is iridescent and does look purplish at times in certain light. Maybe the SHAN enhanced it

          Underwater has a great effect on color as well. Water depth affects light penetration , yada, yada......look it up

          Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, a food offering presented to the LORD. God loves BBQ!

            Think you're right, after I fished it it got a little crusty (probably from to much sally) and didn't look as purple afterwards.

            Standard stinks. Stoli through and through.
