Wouldn't it be possible to modulate the opacity of these dots, according to the angle from the sun.

For instance: with the sun light in the back, 80% opacity.

With the sun light in front, only 40% of opacity.

Because the angle to the sun is the main parameter which makes an aircraft easily visible or not, at the same distance.

Cheers,

I agree...
That is a good point. I was just talking with my brother who is an Airline Pilot and USAF prior(a total of about 18 years of flight experience there) and we were discussing the same thing...
