UV light from the sun when cloudy?
When i was 9 years old it was a partial sun eclipse but it was very cloudy so couldn’t see it. But i remember me telling my parent and i was convinced i was going to get blind.
Now when i searched the net for answers about how much Clouds are damping the sun s UV do i get really really confused.
Some sites say the UV will go right through the Clouds, which means that eveyr person looking in the sky say a rainy day can get damaged by the sun.. In fact it would be more dangerous to look at a cloud where the sun is behind than looking at the sun itself because the Eye is not closing as much.
So what is really up here. How can it be the SAME thing to look at a cloud in front of the sun and looking into the sun itself..
Shouldn’t the cloud not even damping but also spread out the UV? A laser is dangerous because it is so concentrated but if beam is very big will it not be dangerous.
