I remember as a kid I was always told not to look directly at the sun, but I always did it anyway. It was easy for me to do in fact, and it didn't really bother my eyes too much at all. It was also very easy to make out the border of the sun from any glare surrounding the sun. But now, I just recently noticed, that the sun seems so much brighter. It's nearly impossible to look directly at the sun. It's just so bright, and the glare around it is so big it's even a little hard to see the sun's edge. Has anyone else noticed this too?
