What is the difference between direct observation and indirect observation?
Direct observation is an instance in which you use one of your senses: sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing, to experience an event that happened in your presence. An indirect observation is basically the opposite of a direct observation in that you observe something after it has happened. Example of a direct observation would be seeing a burning fire, feeling its warmth and smelling the fumes. Or perhaps your eyes get watery from the smoke. The indirect observation would be coming upon an empty campsite and seeing the burnt logs and ashes.
Asked in Definitions
Definition of direct observation?
Direct observation means looking at it with your own two eyes, feeling it with your fingers (or other body parts), directly hearing it with your ears or directly tasting it with your tongue. Indirect observation means not sensing the object of observation directly but by observing the effects it has on its surroundings. An example of indirect observation might be seeing footprints in the snow and using this as evidence that snow leopards are in the area. Direct observation would be seeing the leopard itself.

What are direct observations?
Direct observation is an observation made by using your senses (hear, see, touch, taste, feel). In this case, the observer records directly what that are seeing. Contrary, an indirect observation is an observation made by observing the effects on the present surrounding. In this case, the observer would use the recordings of others (including self observation). In other words, what you can see directly versus what you can infer from another observation. Direct observation, as an example, would be seeing a dog and observing that he is there. Indirect observation, as an example, would be seeing the dog's paw prints in the snow and observing that he had been there.
