Each yellow light looked down like a golden eye.

Overall, we note that the hadronic uncertainties, denoted by the light (yellow) bands, are somewhat larger in the spin-independent case than in the spin-dependent case.
Theoretical Aspects of Dark Matter Detection
The small light (yellow) shaded extensions of this region reflect the hadronic matrix element uncertainties.
