This area is about 600 mm20 in diameter, and is the part of the retina that provides the highest resolution of detail; however, the absence of rods makes it relatively insensitive to light. The eye has three mechanisms for regulating the amount of light reaching the retina. Short-term and fairly small variations are dealt with by the iris, which opens and closes to adjust the size of the eye’s aperture. There is also a safety system (rather like that on the Hubble Space Telescope) that rapidly closes our eyelids if the light is too bright.
3792″. When observed from northerly latitudes, it is justly famous for the exotic range of colors it exhibits owing to the effects of the atmosphere. It also has a close companion star known as the Pup, which is a white dwarf star, the first ever to be discovered. Sirius is a dazzling sight in a telescope. 41 The eighth brightest star in the sky, notable for the fact that it has, like nearby Sirius, a companion star that is a white dwarf. 8 and a mean separation of 5 arcsec. 72 The 17th brightest star is the brighter star of the two in Gemini, the other being, of course, Castor.
Basically, a spectrum is a map of the light coming from the star. It consists of all of the light from the star, spread out according to wavelength (color) so that the different amounts of light at different wavelengths can be measured. Red stars have a lot of light at the red end of the spectrum, while blue stars have a correspondingly larger amount at the blue end. However, the important point here is that in addition to this light, there will be a series of dark lines superimposed upon this rainbowlike array of colors.
