  • It Hurts my Eyes When I Look at the Sky!

    So, I went cloud gazing just a few minutes ago. I climbed unto the roof of my house and lay down. I tried looking at the clouds right above me, but couldn't. The clouds were out of focus and my eyes just kept squinting and then closing(I couldn't control it). And if I forced them to stay open, everything became a blur and my eyes would water and start hurting. Now, the sky wasn't that bright and the sun was quite a distance away from the part of the sky I was looking at. If I stood up and looked at the clouds above the horizon, I was fine.

    I don't get it. Is there something wrong with the clouds or is it me? I took some pictures of the clouds, but they're just normal clouds. Nothing extraordinary. I can post them if need be.

      I had an odd experience with clouds last week. I was in Albert Square, Manchester, sitting on the Albert Statue steps, directly in front of the town hall. The town hall is quite a spectacular tall building, with an even taller central tower. Sitting on the steps and looking up at the tower, from directly in front of it I was looking up at an angle of 45 degrees, maybe more. The wind was blowing briskly from behind me, and it was a part clouded day...the first following what seems like years of daily rain here. The fllufy white clouds were therefore going directly away from me, and disappearing over the top of the town hall.
      Now I should have expected this, but it still surprised me. There was an optical illusion effect, in that if felt as if the town hall and its tower were falling towards me. Quite uncomfortable really.

      This shows Manchester Town hall and in the foreground the statue where I was sitting.

      The dress in which I unicycled was not THAT short, but in retrospect, I think that maybe the blue one would have been more appropriate to the terrain.

        Maybe you were tired... or had just woke up? (or need glasses ) but when i used to go out early in the morning I could never open my eyes fullt cos it hurt, even if the sky was full of clouds (but still bright) I would squint...

        Try looking out the window just after you've got up in the morning and see if it hurts lol... without sunglasses!!

                I don't do cochester either. Am I missing out?

                And I wear contacts. I don't generally have problems with bright settings. It was more than an hour after I woke up. I went to the sea to have a swim, came back, checked unicyclist.com and then went on the roof. So, my eyes couldn't be that sleepy.

                And focusing on clear sky from my balcony also produces a similar feeling, but not that intense. And if I keep looking it goes away.

                  Maybe its because there is such a contrast between the land, that you are normally looking at, and the sky

                              You have blue eyes, right? If so, that's probably it. Blue-eyed people are almost always more sensitive to the sun because of the lack of pigment.
