Why doesn't the curtain hide the stars which fill the entire sky at night when the sun is supposedly still in the sky but hidden behind the curtain? Are the stars closer than the sun, so they are in front of the curtain? Why does the sun not just go out like a light switch when the curtain is drawn in front of it, instead of the gradual fading of the light at sunset that we see every day?Perhaps I am having difficulty communicating the point.
The Sun never goes behind the curtain.
The stars and moon may produce a different type of light not affected by the properties of the curtain.
It might be better to use the word veil instead of curtain.
They never just blacken a movie theatre when they are about to show a movie, do they?
Nope, they slowly fade to dark.
A different kind of light sounds super implausible. This light would have to consist of a hitherto unknown subatomic particle that appears exactly like a photon, but for some reason, it does not interact with this veil. Another option is that the veil represents a new fundamental interaction which has never been observed which absorbs one frequency of light but not most.
