It looks almost like moderate rain on a weather map.

I can't post the photo I found, it was perfect but the yellow spot low looks like the weather radar yellow for moderate rain. That is what the visual from going low reminds me of. Almost the same as after stain from looking at bright light.

Yellow spot low usually means < 65

That is like the color of it. That yellow green after image looking spot like from a looking at bright light. Forms in the center of my vision. When low I notice I get more after image visuals from bright things like lights or white objects in the sun.

It can't be unique symptom just I get.

The description sounds like what I see after Ive gone out to the well shed after dark and replaced a burnt out light bulb used for freeze protection. When I look away from the light back into the darkness, I still see lights even if I close my eyes for a few seconds. Nothing to do with my BG going low or dropping quickly.

The original picture appears as only an icon (little blue square with a question mark) on my Mac, right clicking and opting to open in a new tab shows me the picture, in case anybody else has trouble seeing it.

T12018, have you found this "aura" to be consistent with all lows? Beats being hypo-unaware, I guess.

(I have not experienced this, but I'm sure it's not unique to just you - maybe just rather rare.)

Added: I did a quick internet search and it seems visual disturbances are on the list of hypo symptoms, along with the more common blurred vision
