# Concept

The idea for this assignment originally was to make flashing lights in a dark background, however I couldn’t figure out how to make it work as intended. Because of that I decided to change the idea based on the sun and space, similar to this:

Based on that I decided to make a big orange ball that would flash with small motionless circles to look like stars.

# Code

Creating the code was the most difficult part of making the image. In my attempt to make the first concept, I stumbled into a video of making circles (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XATr_jdh-44) and to() functions.

```for(i=0; i<20; i++){
let x = random(width);
let y= random(height);
let r = random(1,5)
fill(255,255,255) // had to fill it white because they took the color of the sun//
ellipse(x,y,r,r)
}```

After this I used a code similar to the one seen in class of making the triangle loose color and make it bright again. At the end my code looked like this:

```function setup() {
createCanvas(400, 400);
}
let greenValue = 255;
function draw() {
background(0)
for(i=0; i<20; i++){
let x = random(width);
let y= random(height);
let r = random(1,5)
fill(255,255,255)
ellipse(x,y,r,r)

}
greenValue = greenValue - 5;
if (greenValue === 105) {
greenValue = 255;
}
fill(greenValue, greenValue - 111, greenValue - 200);
ellipse(200,200, 300,300);

}
```

# Reflection/Future Work

Personally, I wish the code did not take as much time as it did, as well as reduce the amount of mistakes made, as my computer crashed a few times while writing the code.

Alongside that, I would have liked the color to dim down and slowly dim up repeatedly, but could not find a way to do it.
