And here is the scientific proof of what happened:

Light enters the eye through the lens, different wavelengths corresponding to different colors. The lights hit the retina in the  back of the eye where pigments fire up neural connections to the visual cortex, the part of the brain that processes those signals into an image. Critically, though that first burst of light is made of whether wavelengths are illuminating the world, reflecting off whatever you’re looking at. Without you even knowing about it, your brain figures out what color light is bouncing off the thing your eyes are looking at, and essentially subtracts that color from the ” real ” color of the object. ” Our visual system is supposed to throw away information about the illuminant and extract information about the actual reflectance ” says  Jay Neitz, a neuroscientist at the University of Washington. ” But I’ve studied individual difference in color vision for 30 years, and this is one of the biggest individual differences I’ve ever seen ”
