    say your standing outside on a day like today when the sky's are so clear it seems their aint so much as a single cloud in th sky for miles

    with your back turned to the sun as you continue to stare at the blue sky after maybe all of a minute perhaps you slowly start to notice what appears to be these tiny pin prick like dots of light floating around in the air so long as you keep your forward field of vision fixed on the sky alone

    what exactly are those tiny dots things anyway?

    for that matter is there even a term for the whole affect

    whenever i let myself just space out like that when i see those things in the sky, as a transformer fan a small part of me can't help but think that what i'm seeing is ,well for lack of a better term ,what appears to be so many countless near microscopic sparks

    That's your retina slowly being burned off as you stare at something bright.

    He said with your back to the sun.

    But that's almost right anyhow. You see, the sky is a pretty bright thing even if you aren't staring at the sun. The moving specks you see are misfires in your optical nerves, like little power surges.

    on a lighter note though those tiny spots of light actually do look like a transformer life spark to me other then the extreme differance in size bout the only differance i 've noticed so far besidesthat is that they don't have that whole pulsating effect

    other then that thought o me anyway those floating dots of light look remakably similer to a spark as the term exists in the transformers fictional mythos

    "Oh squiggly line, in my eye fluid.
    I see you there, lurking on the periphery of my vision.
    But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.
    Are you shy, squiggly line?
    Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the centre of my eye?
    Oh squiggly line, it's alright, you are forgiven."

    I see those from time to time - apparently it's quite common. It's like looking at a microscope slide full of hundreds of hyperactive clear microbes.
