Hitting head, seeing stars

I write for Popular Science magazine, and for a column called FYI, I'm
trying to answer a reader's question:

      When you hit your head and see "stars," what are you really seeing?

Can anyone point me to an answer for that? I've tried a couple
neurologists/head injury experts, but haven't come up with much of an
explanation.

Many thanks.
