Shining Search

   At night, when a deer stares at a bright light, its eye will appear to glow. This phenomenon is called shining. Shining occurs because the deer’s eyes are composed of two membranes. During shining, light reflects off one of these layers, called the tapetum lucidum. This reflection is the glow.
