I used to get a tan very easily when I was young. I'm 35 now. Now I can't get a tan to save my life and I am white year round. I live in SC, so it's hot. Took a vacation out in the sun with no sunscreen to the Philippines, was outside for 2 weeks all day every day, no tan.

Proof the Sun used to be much harsher and is now kinder and gentler.

Or proof our bodies change as we age. Wonder which one it is .....

I believe it is us and the planet from the chemicals in everything we eat,drink,and get sprayed on us to the crap we put into the planet to get PRECIOUS resources out. All that is happening is we are letting the PTB cook us for the reptilian taste buds and transforming our planet into theirs. Sheeple have been sensitized so no one believes it

Just the fact that Melanoma has increased in people eight times in the last 30 years tells me something is different. Its hitting more and more young people that sunbathe and go to tanning beds also.

It is definately more intense and only takes a few minutes to get a sunburn for me. I was only 33 when I was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma in my lungs and brain. So if anyone has family or friends that like to tan please say something to them about wearing some sunblock.

looking directly at the sun has screwed your eye sight up.


Hehe seriously as you get older your eyes deceive.

What stays the same?

The Sun is not the same!

The Sun is traveling in space and when it comes into a different type of space it behaves differently. Will it perhaps look different? Yes! Will our atmosphere look different? Yes! It is different.

All things change in time!

Has anyone considered that this yellow/gold sun perception to be a slight psychological ordeal? As all kids do, we draw the sun as a giant golden yellow ball in the sky. Could this perhaps be the reasoning behind our beliefs of the sun always appearing yellow/gold? I believe the atmosphere has changed, indeed, over time due to air pollution and such. Every now and then though, you still get a bright glorious blue sky, and a wonderful, colorful, ball we call the sun. I think some of it is memories of our perceptions, and most of it is the changing of atmospheric conditions on any given day. Hazy skies, slight cloud coverage, contrails, chemtrails (if you wish). I do remember looking at the sun as a kid, and getting yelled at because I would go blind, but I can't exactly say I remember it being a golden ball hanging in the sky.

I have lived above 2000 m in the north-central Colorado Rocky Mountains for 23 years. For about 20 of these years, never once could I see the headlights of cars traveling down the dirt road along my property. But starting about 4 years ago, I began seeing short flashes of car headlights between the foliage. This trend continues and I can now follow cars traveling the edge of my property when 20 years ago I could not even tell if a car was on the road at all.

Your observations could be consistent with mine, less foliage would allow more light and sound to reach an observer.

It would be reckless speculation for me to suggest a cause; nevertheless, I have noticed one wide spread change in Colorado. Fungus appears to have an ever greater role in foliage stress than I have seen at any time before.

I hope my comments help you find the answer for your situation.

Very interesting, but no, we live in the redwoods area and have huge evergreens along the highway here. From our home to the city about 5 miles, is lined thickly and has not changed other then the normal underbrush removal of huckleberries and stuff done every year by the road crew.

The same for the last 20 years, no cedar disease nothing the trees are really really large, if any were removed it would be noticed. The foliage looks healthy we live next to the highway, we can hear a car so far away now that it takes minuets to get here. We used to not even hear any traffic from the far end of our home ever. we have examined every possibility except as i said unless they changed the tire composition or added something to the pavement when they repave which they do pretty often here. The pavement however looks the same.

Na it would take a lot more for trees to change in any way. If its our atmosphere changing the trees would change faster than if it was the sun growing in strength. Say the sun is getting hotter an stronger. At first the trees would enjoy it up to a certain point then they would slowly fry. Kind of the opposite of what your trying to say. Nice try though... You can't debunk fact. It's getting hotter and stronger for some reason.


Did you read my link? I didn't mention trees changing?
Changes in the atmosphere of a type that could change sound would not necessarily change the plant life, although there have been many reported changes to plant life on the planet.

I am of the same opinion the sun has become hotter and uncomfortable so maybe yo did not mean to respond to me after all?

Agree. Sun was warm, yellow. Sunny days were so cheerful looking, now they are cold looking and blinding, but the sun on my skin is sooooooo hot. It's uncomfortable almost immediately, not warm and soothing as it had been.

It can be 65 F with a breeze, and I'll need to head to the shade because my skin feels as if it's cooking after a few minutes...while in shade, it's feeling very chilly.

So it's the heat and the color. It's as if we all shifted over to another planet with a different sun


But then again, to me, the moon looks different too. And clouds.

The "goldenness" (is that how you would spell it?) is gone. The green of the trees and grass is less "yellow" looking. The sky is not the same blue.

I miss my "real" earth and sun and sky of my childhood.


Your observations are exactly as my husband and me, we are constantly speaking of it every time we are outside. he has italian in him and all the years before he never burned he browned, and now he burns after a few hours of yard work just like me who if Auburn haired green eyes and white.

We have lost the flavor in foods also, even the "organic" do not have the flavor as in the past. Every family around us is trying to grow food because they have not tasted a real tomato or veggie for so long, we have difficulty growing most things here as we are in the forest and coastal.

I think the blame is not with the sun, but with our atmosphere. That is why our perception of the sun has changed, imho. I will await Phage to tell you the science, hopefully he will drop by..... Some argue we have changed our atmosphere, I will just say there is a lot of evidence it has changed. To me the sun does feel more harsh. Damaged ozone?


It could be both, maybe the sun has effected the atmosphere.
One odd thing we have noticed for a few years now there is a change in the sound of cars coming down the highway. You now hear a different sound and the cars can be heard way far off. Nothing has changed they are using the same paving the temperatures and amount of trees are the same,so the only thing I could think is the atmosphere is somehow different.


Doubtful that it is both. Not sure about the sound thing. Might have to do with trees etc, things between you and the highway that are no longer there. The sun has no effect on sound.


The sun effects everything on this planets including the atmosphere. The incoming particles change on a daily basis. The temperatures do effect the travel of sound waves.

There have been changes to all of the planets and that does point to changes in the sun.

That's because indoor tanning increases the risk to develop melanoma over 70% more than outdoor tanning in the "harsh Sun". Do you do any research at all?

When I was a kid I got a lot of sun and exercise. I'm older now. I try not to get too much sun nowadays. I wear a hat that I've lined with tape. I don't like sunscreen.

Everyday the wrinkles come clearer, but I can delay them a bit by using the shade.

Ever noticed how african americans have such smooth youthful skin? It's because they got more sun protection. The side effect is african americans actually need more sunlight. There's kind of an epidemic in america with people who have dark skin being under exposed. The surprising fact is that a white person with a wrinkly face can often be healthier than a smooth faced dark skinned person.

Heaven would be a place where the sun doesn't give you wrinkles and skin cancer. Although I think the skin cancer is more a factor of your overall health than your sun exposure.

I will always miss JO, our female German Shepard.. best dog ever. A tear for her, havent seen her since i was 7. What a great dog, and from the pound. Parents got her at about 18mos old from there when i was 4.
She lived with us at FE Warren AFB and I recall camping trips with her. She lived her final days at a relatives property in Eastern Tn with family after we had to move. She lived her last few years as a member of a pack of loved dogs that got to roam and play the miles of woods and pasture.

Yes, more people who also think the light's just too darn unrealistically bright. I myself made a thread a couple of months ago about the sun seeming crazily bright and needing sunglasses even during cloudy days. It was a mistake to put it off until this particular time of year, since it just invited several junk replies about how people post this every spring.
But who complains about a mild winter, or a sun that one doesn't see due to not going out due to the cold? Not me... oh well.
Here's to sunscreen and dark fashionable shades all year round.

I really don't notice any change in color thinking back to the 60s. But living in the same place its position has changed a bit as the evening glare down the street is more than it was.

I used to tan right away but as I aged (and this was gradual) I now burn first then tan and peel. But I think this has more to do with me. The only other thing I can think of is the food supply. I still eat the same as I did but the food is a lot different than it was back then. And come to think of it the food changed gradually too!

The again it could be I'm just getting older or just all in my beliefs and expectations?

Interesting topic.

its quite odd really..back in the 60's when i was a kid,we were outside all day long,
all summer long. never worried about burning at all.
now..i live on a street filled with kids,never hardly see them till the sun gets low in the sky.
my own kids dont like going out much till later in the day.
very odd

Dude I'm the essence of crazy , so don't let me be an accurate guage lol

River Raid was awesome. I think my favorite though was Demon Attack.

I noticed with Count Chocula, Boo Berry and that strawberry Frankenstein I cant remember the name was that they were more solid back then, and just like Cookie Crisp (my favorite) it went from solid tasting to just nothing but crisp air. I guess it was to save money, but then all the cereals tasted the same kind of nothingness. Although Honey Comb is still good I think.

I also had a German Shepherd, miss that dog a lot.

Thanks for sharing, it's these memories we don't forget.

The only reason I so desperately wanted Genesis was because of its Altered Beast...but love Shining in the Darkness still the most to this day.

If you notice too the iterations of how the sun is portrayed in video games has also changed, from the yellow ball to just a glaring white fluorescent giant eye-sore in the skies.

Thanks for everybody who has commented. I learned in school that it doesn't take a large survey to determine the likely outcome of any particular survey. You just have to get a good representative sample, 25 - 30 is good. I think we got that here. Even if some folks haven't told the truth, I still think it shows that most people DO remember the friendly sun of yesteryear.
