People report seeing different colours while looking at it, from Brown to Green to Yellow to Purple. Some people see no colours at all, and some see a variation of all of them.

The phenomenon is not entirely understood, one possible theory however has to do with the colour receptors in the eyes responding at different rates to red, green, and blue.

What colour do you see?
