How The Sun Sees You

This video by Thomas Leveritt makes you wonder, makes you smile, and makes you think. Using an ultraviolet lens, people were filmed and got to see what they looked like in UV, just like how the sun would see you. It’s amazing how different some people’s skin looks, especially those with freckles. I love that glasses completely block UV too, appearing black. The purpose of the video is to show how effective sunscreen is, and how vital it is. Phil Plait over at Slate goes into greater detail about ultraviolet light, and it’s an interesting read.

After seeing this, are you more likely to put on some sunscreen? Onwards!
