If it was entirely enclosed you would see nothing. You need light to see. If you happened to have brought a flashlight, likely nothing as the reflecting light would quickly blind you.
Probably not true, as mirrors do not reflect 100%. You would probably see a distorted or multiple distorted reflections of yourself. The answer changes based on where your eyes are within the sphere.
No1tovote4 is right about the light, but if you had light, you would see a kaleidoscopic-like image all around you made up of all the colors on you (your skin, hair, clothes, etc.). The image would be concave like it is when you look at yourself in a spoon.
No, you wouldn't.
You dinged me over a discussion about light refraction inside a sphere?
You wouldn't see a blur of colors because mirrors do not refract 100% of the light. Even if you could somehow locate your eye in the absolute center of the sphere, your own body would be absorbing light and interrupting the infinite refraction you're referring to that would lead to a blur of colors.
You seriously just dinged me over that?
haha, sorry. I'm a little punchy this morning. I stayed up all night writing a paper. Don't take it to heart, I've got a small rep so it only took off a point. Sorry again. I realized it was un-called for and I've been trying to rep you for your "partisan :blah2:" post in "michelle got this one right," but the forum's telling me I've got to spread it around first.
'Tis ok... I don't really care much about the whole rep thing, just wondering why this set you off when I've had much worse posts against you. Cheers
This would depend largely on the size of the sphere and the candle power of the light in question. While mirrors do not reflect 100%, they do multiply the output of the light, it is likely if the sphere were small enough that you would be light-blind quickly, not retina-burned permanent blindness, but an uncomfortable spots in the eyes type of blindness.
