White Spots

Post by Superluminal »

I'm sure that everyone has seen them. The white spots that sometimes appear so bright, almost like a flare, and focus into a small point. I've been ignoring them until the last couple of days, I've submitted two so far. Has anyone figured out what they are?

bright white spots

I believe those bright white spots are dust particles that catch the light source in such a way as to directly reflect the light make them appear bright white.
