Whats with Bono's eyes?

Hi im just wondering whether Bono has brown or blue eyes?
Or if he has brown eyes but wears blue contacts.

Cos in older videos such as 'pride' and 'I still havent found' look like he has very dark eyes and in the 'Sweetest thing' vid and now he has light blue eyes.....

Whats going on here?

WTF?? There are pics of Bono with blue eyes way before those color contacts were invented. If they look darker sometimes it's the lighting in the pic.

I've always assumed that his eyes are very, very blue. I agree, it's just the lighting.

Yes, people who've met him always comment on how very blue his eyes are, and even early pictures show that. As to the pale eye colour in The Sweetest Thing, all of the colours in that video seem a bit washed out to me.

Very intense blue eyes. I think the color looks different with the lighting.
After seeing him in person, I felt like the little boy in The Jungle Book who is hypnotized by the snakes eyes. I could NOT look away from the eyes! Bono has to break the gaze... a mere mortal can not look away.

I can attest to the mesmerizing quality of his eyes. I had a dream a couple years back and he looked at me and all I could do was look in his eyes, and read what was behind them. They were very, veryblue behind his very blue shades.

His baby pic shows him with light eyes, but not the colour, no chance he'd have brown eyes.. he definitly have bright beautiful blue eyes...

I've never met him, but I have been close enough in concert to see his eyes, and they are incredibly beautiful and mesmerizing I was standing right at his feet outside the heart in Baltimore when he took off his shades, blinked them and then opened them and looked at us. Several of us girls up close literally screamed. It was magic. I agree, his eyes and his gaze are intense and powerful.

Well, look at that baby picture. Those are the most intense, intelligent eyes I've ever seen on a baby. They're actually a bit alarming.

When I first saw this thread I thought it was going to be about his eyesight.
