I posted quotes that they did describe it as bright. The Apollo 16mm crew compartment video in cis lunar showed bright sun light flooding in the windows.So with either their American Aviator sunglasses and/or their visors, they should have been able to look at the Sun and describe how it appeared, though obviously the colour would not be correct.
Wow, But there are tons of space based hardware looking at the sun. Including solar illuminance measurements above the atmosphere.
I've posted pictures of Shuttle/ Hubble with sun in the background of Hubble, Gemini Camera sweeping across the sun at higher zenith than the ISS could ever capture, The Luner Module unblocking the sun with 16 mm camera at 70 miles above the lunar surface, The EVA s clearly in cis lunar sunlight with the EVA light pointed toward the CM hatch. So really what is ridiculous to who..Of all the experiments performed, no time was allotted for observation or photography of the Sun while in cislunar space, just plain ridiculous. Even from orbit, Skylab similarly had not one experiment to observe the Sun with a camera
LOL.., though they had a UV and x-ray experiments on the external Apollo Telescope mount. And as usual, they took no solar filters. This is the smoking gun when it comes to the visibility of the Sun from space, the fact that they will not even take them out there, or if they do, as with Petit, they are looking towards Earth, through the atmosphere, and not away from Earth.
Cool, at lest your back to admitting eye witness accounts..GaryN...And where is your science Frank? The idea that anything at all is visible from cislunar space, despite the astronauts claims otherwise, is a faith based conclusion, with absolutely no science to support it.
So science is a hypothesis based on the absence of evidence? Even in the face of many falsifications...
To quote myself..
Wow, But there are tons of space based hardware looking at the sun.
Finally a token piece of science..GaryN...To me it is an opto-electro-magnetic machine at the physical level,

o dam, metaphysical and philosophy of consciousness discussion, was just addressed to Kevin..but it also has metaphysical properties, is the generator of the Cosmic Consciousness, though not conscious in itself, and we are all intimately connected to that consciousness if we can learn to quieten what we think is our personal consciousness, but which is really the Ego that arises as we acquire language and are programmed by our education and environment. Turn off the Ego, tune in to the Sun for the real truth about itself.
But lets just ignore it..The topic here is the visibility/invisibility of stars as seen from space.
You are welcome to open your own thread covering your thoughts on consciousness. If you choose to do that, than any discussion of the visibility of stars would be off topic on that thread.
It is simply a matter of forum etiquette.
But theoretically, if we were to follow the thread topic, we might get this train on the rails as some recent posters have done.
You posted this business of " opto-electro-magnetic machine" sorry but in this forum it really comes out to visual electromagnetic, Its just machine that is funny.
So how does Astronomers saying the necessity of a ND to view the sun properly not falsify your thinking?Wiki..
In photography and optics, a neutral-density filter, or ND filter, is a filter that reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths, or colors,of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. It can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter. The purpose of a standard photographic neutral-density filter is to reduce the amount of lightentering the lens...
In practice, ND filters are not perfect, as they do not reduce the intensity of all wavelengths equally. This can sometimes create color casts in recorded images, particularly with inexpensive filters. More significantly, most ND filters are only specified over the visible region of the spectrumand do not proportionally block all wavelengths of ultraviolet or infrared radiation. This can be dangerous if using ND filters to view sources (such as the Sun or white-hot metal or glass), which emit intense invisible radiation, since the eye may be damaged even though the source does not look bright when viewed through the filter. Special filters must be used if such sources are to be safely viewed.
