Where did you read that?

Yeah; around 20 stops at any given moment - somewhere around 30~40
stops under completely different lighting conditions. That is, from
(say) a fully dark adapted eye looking at the night sky from a dark
sky site to a full sunlight scene.

I had read that it was considerably less:

He says that the absolute dynamic range of the human eye is about 24 stops given time to adjust to the light, and somewhere around 10-14 stops at any given moment (although more, when using just the rods at night).
