Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm talking hotter than T = 6000k.
The higher the temperature, the more the curve in the attached figure would shift to the left (while at the same time getting higher).
So the intensity peak would eventually fall back into the invisible portion (very small wavelength this time) of the electromagnetic spectrum. (UV and beyond)
You would still see visible light though, right? Just as you could still detect infrared radiation.
Is this always the case? Or can an object be so hot that it just doesn't radiate any visible light?
Me, personally, I don't think so. But I figured it'd be an interesting question to ask. Tried googling it. Couldn't find an answer relatively quickly.
