NVG's are impressive technology. I was a helicopter crew chief in the Army and we flew with ANVS6 series....turn a black night into a cloudy, green day. Seeing someone walking along, smoking a cigarette, it was like a flare lighting up their face. What looks like a barely perceptible red light is like a super bright spot/flood under goggles. You could light someone up and they'd never know it.
