    Re: What's up with our jerseys? I can't get it right.

    I have noticed them at times, particularly over the last 5 years, looking more of a dark blue (I remember an SI photo in 98 of Moss catching a TD against the Titans/Oilers and seeing that compared to another pic of a home game, and the one in SI looked purple, while the other looked more dark bluish/purple). This season, they appear as purple as the jersey I have.

    Vikesfan, you might not need a new TV! There is color and contrast adjustments on your TV, I know this might be a new concept since they have only been around for 50 years (better late than never).

    You know, the jerseys have looked more purple to me this year, as opposed to bluish-purple in the past. Where I've noticed it the most is on the helmets. Those have always had a bluish tinge to them, but look especially purple this year.

    Yet, when I look at the pictures at startribune.com, and compare this year to last year, there doesn't look to be any change. I wonder if the networks have new cameras, or some other new technology, that might be broadcasting the color slightly differently.

    I hold the answer



    Our home jerseys in Natural sunlight look differnt.

    In the dome with artificial lighting, they come off darker and less bright!

    That is true. It all has to do with the visible spectrum that we learned in what, 5th grade? The visible light has a range of 4-700 nm with a range of violet (shorter wavelength) through red (longer wavelengths). There are explanations based on this as to why the sky is blue, why the sunset is red, etc.

    The question we have is why do the Vikings' jerseys/helmets look like they're blue when we know they are purple? Violet and blue are the wavelengths of light that are scattered more efficiently than the other wavelengths in the visible spectrum due to being shorter wavelengths. For example, the sky looks blue instead of violet or purple because the sun emits more energy as blue light and our eyes are more sensitive to the blue light.

    The reason the jerseys/helmets appear blue sometimes all relates back to how efficiently the wavelengths are scattered and the quality of light during the game.
