If you ever had glow-in-the-dark stars, moons, and planets stuck to the walls and ceiling of your bedroom, we think these next 20/20 Vision Munzees are right up your alley! These phosphorescent frames were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Would you wear these at night?
Only twelve Glow In The Dark Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Physical Magnets though so be sure to stock up!

Capturing the Glow In The Dark Glasses will add this oozing with cool Night Vision badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!
This munzee is based on the iconic shutter shades, which typically come in solid plastic colors. Shutter shades feel like a recent invention — as Blickers.com notes, you probably associate them with Kanye West as he wore them in his “Stronger” music video in 2007, kicking off a new trend. But, like many trends of today, early forms of shutter shades go all the way back to the 1950s! They went by the slightly more elegant name of “Venetian blinders.”
We’ve put our own spin on shutter shades by using phosphorescent plastic! Ever wonder how this type of plastic achieves its otherworldly glow? Colourchange.com has a neat and simple explanation:
Phosphors radiate visible light after being energized and require exposure to light for a while before they will glow in the dark.
Phosphors then slowly release their stored energy over time. As they release the energy, they emit small amounts of light, which we see as an object glowing.
This is different from fluorescence, which will immediately stop glowing once the energy source is gone.
You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. More unique 20/20 Vision specials will launch throughout the year so keep on the lookout — you won’t want to miss out on these bouncing bifocals!
