Description

This record contains one fly's eye component. It is comprised of three thin metal plates in between two thicker metal plates. These plates are held together with four pieces of glass that act as stands. There is a small, thin piece of wire encased in plastic attached to two of the thin metal plates. The surface of both sides of the fly's eye is reflective, yet if you tilt it the right way you will see a grid comprised of very small dots. A paper label with a string attached was found inside the container with the fly's eye, it reads "Fly's Eye (Alice Type and ASO Type)" in handwritten blue ink.
