Install this glow in the dark Moon decal on a wall or ceiling to add a glowing all night feature to your glow in the dark star ceiling. The Moon is painted with high grade photoluminescent paint and glows with green/aqua tones. Use a bright flashlight to super charge your Moon to more intense colours. This glowing sticker was charged with daylight and a compact fluorescent room light. The glow colours fade to a white glow for the rest of the night until a fresh charge with bright light renews the glow crystals. The glow stars here are seen at close up for the video and appear like small coloured circles. When placed on a wall or ceiling in a bedroom at night the star stickers glow with a natural star like quality, bright pinpoints of pure light with diffuse glow about them.
Some fun mentions about glow in the dark stars; Some of my customers have said that the glow stars appear to twinkle at night. The perception of twinkling is possibly a result of the brain interpreting subtle variations in the glow, especially in low-light conditions. Personally I don't see them twinkle but I often notice that to see a star more clearly I must look away just to the side of it. This is called averted vision. It directs the light to fall on the more light-sensitive rod cells in the peripheral parts of the eye's retina. It allows us to better perceive faint objects like stars in low-light conditions because the rod cells are more effective at detecting dim light. There are more cone cells in the centre of the eye that are used for seeing colour in bright light, maybe that is why we cannot see colour so well at night. Possibly also the rods and cones have something to do with the twinkling star effect.
A second theory and possibly more likely is a result of the autokinetic effect.This phenomenon occurs when a stationary light source in a dark environment appears to move or twinkle.
Stars emit a faint and continuous glow. In a dark room, the absence of other visual references makes it challenging for our eyes to stay fixed on the stars, leading to the perception of slight, involuntary movements and the appearance of twinkling or flickering.
Factors like eye fatigue, individual differences in visual perception, and the overall darkness of the room can influence the autokinetic effect. As a result, some lucky people may experience the twinkling to varying degrees.
I'm curious – have you noticed this twinkling flickering phenomenon from your glow stars? Feel free to share your thoughts, and let me know about the magical glow that stars bring to your surroundings!
