1.19. Night and UV Geoaches
[Updated Feb 2012]
Night Geocaches have been designed to be found at night. They can be difficult or impossible to find during the day. For example, you must use a flashlight and follow a series of reflectors to find the final location. Night caches usually have the attribute "night geocache", "recommended at night", and/or "flashlight required." UV geocaches are a variation on night caches, where geocachers seeking the cache will need to use a UV flashlight. Geocache owners of UV geocaches must include the UV attribute on the cache page.
Night geocaches are most often listed as mystery geocaches, sometimes as multi-caches. The starting coordinates often locate the first of the reflector/UV mark location.
Those who use Pocket Queries (a Premium Member feature), can create a filter using the attributes above, and automate their searches.
When designing a night geocache, please keep in mind that the hunt for a geocache must include GPS use to a set of accurate coordinates. The location of the container with log must be loaded into the waypoints tool.
