exactly how long would I have to stare in ~ a complete moon for it to execute the same damage as staring at the sunlight for a full second?


The sunlight is 400,000 times together bright together the Moon. The kind of "brightness" that post discusses is (as much as I can tell) some sort of "flux", so this should typical that ~ 400,000 seconds, the Moon will have transmitted as many photons (or as much energy, or visible photons, or something) as the sun after a second.

You are watching: Stare at the moon

So, lazy answer: 400,000 secs or about 5 days.

Actual answer: your eyes have the right to repair damage from radiation, unless they're overwhelmed. So no amount of staring in ~ the Moon will damages them the way that staring in ~ the sun will. Yet staring for days on end at anything is still probably negative for you.
