Synonyms: unclear, vague, fuzzy, blurred, faint, dimmed, uncertain, obscure, nebulous, indefinite

Antonyms: clear, obvious, definite,

Tips: The related noun distinction denotes a distinguishing difference or quality, while the related adjective distinct means something is apparently discernible. When you add the negative in-, "not," indistinct acts as its opposite; it is something unclear.
