I have recently begun to fire my down draft gas kiln during the daylight
hours. I can't see the damn flame. I know its in reduction by various tests
of combustion, but I can't tell how big the flame is and how much back
pressure is created. Can anyone tell me how to view the flame in daylight?
Staying up all night to fire is getting old.

As one who fires mostly in the daylight hours, here's what I'd suggest...
take a scrap stick and hold it most of the way into the port you want to
temporarily view. Once it ignites, it'll change the color of the port
flame to a darker yellow/orange so you can easily see it. Just remember
that it takes a while for body hair to grow back ...make sure the stick is
long enough .

I make sure the flame is in shadow and then put a piece of black
card/metal/w.h.y as background. It works for me.

I have been able to see it by putting a stove pipe over the spy and looking
down it. Pipe gets hot - fast.
