Default Hand shade effect to see instruments in sun

Not exactly sure what the best way to do this would be, but I'd like some sort of key to be able to do the equivalent of putting your hand up to shade instruments (mainly the MFD's) so you could see them clearly when the sun it at your back and glaring on them. Love the fact that the sun glaring on them is simulated, I'd just like a way to stick my hand out and shade it so I could read it better.

Yeah, this would be great for several modules.

I suggested a while back that they implement an 'anti-torch' so that you could put it over something that you wanted to remove the glare from.

Was thinking the same "anti-torch" thing. F-18 depserately needs it when the sun shines on those MFCDs...

Please make it happen!
