Reflected light can be very powerful.
Many years ago I was a contract oil
field welder, I woke up at about 3 am in extreme pain, my eyes had been burnt by UV light from welding, we called it getting flashed.
My helmet was in perfect condition, but I pieced together what had happened, I had been welding some, sort of back to back with another welder, and his arc
light had reflected off the inside of my hood
, God that was some of the worst pain I have ever experienced.
As we get closer to cruising, the wife has been buying
long sleeve shirts specially made to block UV and buying
big floppy hats, of course I really like the way she looks in big floppy hats too, so I like the look
