What are these yellow things?

What are these yellow panels? They are at the back of the A350 window. They are on both sides. Anyone know what they are and/or what purpose they serve? Just curious. Thanks!

Here’s what I mean:

I believe they are “blinds” against the sun. Looking at this photo you are supposed to slide it to the left, then the sun won’t hurt your eyes

Ohh. That makes more sense. Odd how they don’t come down from the top though, and that they are yellow…

Yeah I know… I don’t really care about those details anyways haha

It would be call if we could move them! But then, a wasted feature I guess…

moving blinds might be helpful in the future when they could add more realistic lighting (idk if that might happen with METAL but i hope)

I’m pretty sure they come from the sides so they don’t fall down and block views while landing. They’re yellow, because they’re translucent, not opaque, so a pilot could still see through it if they needed too. It’s like a pair of sunglasses.
