Can you see the Sun from from outer space?
Sounds like a simple question, but I cant find a for sure answer. I watched this video on another thread and in it he says you cant see the Sun in outer space, and the only reason you can see it is because of the atmosphere. Well I cant find any pictures of the Sun in space, and the only videos I can find from NASA are close to the atmosphere. Can you see the Sun in outer space? Thanks

Re: Can you see the Sun from from outer space?
I wondered that to, but it seems to me why couldn't you, and why is it dark in space. Doesn't make sense for such a simple common sense question.

Re: Can you see the Sun from from outer space?
Offcourse, we can see it on earth, so why not in space...?
But don't look directly into it in space, it would likley damage your eyes, no clouds/ atmosfere etc...

Can you see other 'suns' shining above after dark?
Think, OP
Sure, you can see the sun in outer space, provided that you aren't a gazillions light years away from it.

how much does the starlight's wavelenght gets changed in our atmosphere?

didn't watch the video yet, but it raises an interesting question: all the photographs and videos of outer space show an ink black starless void...

 Quoting: Keneh

People post images from SOHO and STEREO all the time.
We whole threads dedicated to the observation of the Sun by these space probes.

What kind of magic is the atmosphere supposed to do to the sunlight anyway?
You can see the sunlit Moon, can you?
Would it be invisible in space?
And we can rather easily make a vacuum here on Earth.
I'm sure many experiments involve cameras inside vacuum chambers.

and the only videos I can find from NASA are close to the atmosphere.
 Quoting: Keneh

Why would that make any difference?

Can you see the Sun in outer space? Thanks
 Quoting: Keneh

Yes.

Off course, we can see it on earth, so why not in space...?
But don't look directly into it in space, it would likely damage your eyes, no clouds/ atmosphere etc...

how much does the starlight's wavelenght gets changed in our atmosphere?
 Quoting: Belgian Coward 33568463

Air is transparent.
Why would it change at all?

didn't watch the video yet, but it raises an interesting question: all the photographs and videos of outer space show an ink black starless void...
 Quoting: Belgian Coward 33568463

Only those that are not photographing the stars themselves.
Stars are very dim. If you set your camera to photograph anything else (i.e. something much brighter) stars won't register.

You can see that right here on Earth.
You can photograph the stars at night.
You can however not photograph the full Moon properly exposed and the stars at the same time.

SOHO and STEREO use instruments and that's not the same thing. I'm talking about with your eye or a photograph or video and such.

You not being able to find such images doesn't tell us anything of course.
Try the Apollo photography. Lots of pictures with the Sun in it.

Re: Can you see the Sun from from outer space?
this question is mind blowing.

the only thing i can picture is movies, where the sun is about to come up on the horizon and fry the away planet/object that a team is on, like armageddon or deep impact.

You are standing on a rock in space, looking at something in space, the atmosphere will only act to block your view if anything.

 Quoting: Keneh


The sun is NOT visible in space as it emits no visible light only particles which have to interact with matter before they can be detected!

As an experiment try your tv remote control pointed at your eyes and press any button, you see nothing because it is transmitting infra red light. Repeat the same experiment using your mobile phones camera as your eyes and 'hey presto' you see it!

No medium no light!

This also explains all those Apollo moon pictures with no stars visible! You also never saw an image of the sun from the moons surface or any where else did you!

Yes, but if you look at it without the proper shielding you won't be looking at it (or anything else) for much longer.
