Design

When observing the night sky, the term ‘Milky Way’ is limited to the hazy band of white light some 30 degrees wide arcing across the sky. The light in this band originates from unresolved stars and other material that lie within the Galactic plane.

The Milky Way has a relatively low surface brightness. Its visibility can be greatly reduced by background light such as light pollution or stray light from the moon. This makes the Milky Way difficult to see from any brightly lit urban or suburban location but very prominent when viewed from a rural area when the moon is below the horizon.

Technology

Reflective paint is a type of paint that contains thousands of little glass spheres, designed to reflect lots of light, even at night. It is most frequently used for signs on highways, but is also used on license plates, fishing lures, on mobile objects to be tracked (like a golf ball), or as an indicator on certain machinery.

The size of glass beads ranges from application to application, but generally, the smaller the bead, the more expensive it is, the company reports. The beads are sprayed on after paint is applied for the most even possible distribution. The beads are applied over a coloured base coat designed to yield maximum reflectivity.
