Why are colors harder to see at night?

    The colors we see are a result of the object reflecting back certain light waves.  An object absorbs some colors, and we see the ones it reflects.  Therefore, with less light at night, less light is being reflected back at us and we see less color.

    In order to see colors properly, there has to be light.  Color is simply a visual manifestation of certain light waves being reflected off of the objects you see.  At night, there is significantly less light striking those objects, which means there is less light being reflected off.  Without that light reflection, it’s very difficult to see colors the way you normally would during the day.
