Thanks Mike and Dave. Mike, that chart is very illuminating. I had no idea there were that many species. Amber seems a good way to describe what I saw as red. It seems a monumental brain task to sort out all the flashing going on but just having these different parameters in mind would help

That's a great website for a neat project, Mike! On the discussion board, a participant (whose name email I have omitted here) asked Linda's question, and the project leader replied: In my June 1, 2014 report I reported an individual flying with three flashes and reported it as orange
Hi Dave, People do perceive colors differently due to both biological capacity and training. This is an area of active research. Regarding biological capacity, most people have three types of color receptors in their eyes, each of which is most sensitive to a single color: red, green, or blue.
On the other hand it could have been s very tiny low-flying plane. Linda Sent from my iPhone On Jun 29, 2014, at 10:45 AM, Dave Nutter nutter.d...@me.com wrote: That's a great website for a neat project, Mike! On the discussion board, a participant (whose name email I have omitted here)
It is wild out there...flashing of several kinds, low and high in trees. Give that it is hard to see birds right now, it is well worth a look outside for this pre-4th display. Vic Lamoureux put a similar alert out for Broome, on the Bluewing list. Apparently this is THE night so far if you
Does anyone else notice that some of the flashes look like different colors. Reds and greens. Is this just like a Doppler shift type thing or are they really like that? Linda Sent from my iPhone On Jun 28, 2014, at 10:43 PM, Anne Clark anneb.cl...@gmail.com wrote: It is wild out
Some stars look slightly orange or blue, but the fireflies all look green to me. I think the red flashes are airplanes. Seriously, I know there are different species of fireflies and they use different codes of flashes, but I don't know about different colors. I'm guessing they all use the same
