This might sound like a strange question, but something got me thinking about it recently.
The opacity of plasma in stellar interiors can get quite high, making for shorter free-paths for photons. In these conditions I guess that the light you could theoretically gather, supposing you have a pair of indestructuble eyes submerged in the solar interior, would be the one emitted by the plasma in your immediate surroundings, right? So if the opacity is high enough I can imagine places inside a star like the Sun where there is the same ambient illumination as a typical moonless night here on Earth.
My questions are:
- Is this line of reasoning correct?
- Are these conditions actually possible inside a star?
- Where exactly inside a star are these conditions possible?
