2.12. Night and UV caches

Night caches are designed to be found at night. They are difficult or impossible to find during the day. Typically, geocachers use a flashlight or UV light to follow a series of reflectors to the final location.

Night cache coordinates

Night geocaches can be Mystery Caches or Multi-Caches. But like all geocaches, they must involve GPS use. The posted coordinates are often the location of the first reflector or UV mark. Make sure to add the coordinates of the final container as an additional waypoint.  

Night cache attributes

If your night cache uses UV paint or pen, you must add the UV attribute to your cache page.
