Minit Buckyball 60 atoms + 90 15mm GlowBonds™
The phosphorescent or glow-in-the-dark effect is dependent on several variables. The best indoor light source is a halogen lamp followed by an old style incandescent light bulb. The time the model needs to be exposed to light can also vary; less if the lamp is close & strong, longer if it is low wattage & far away.
Note: this image was taken after 10 second illumination with 2x250W halogen lamps & then a 30 second exposure with a digital camera.
In addition, the more dark accommodation your eyes have, the brighter the glow will appear. The effect may last only a few seconds to 5-10 minutes.
