Using night vision goggles

As we become more worldly travelers, we are becoming better at finding unique things to do in each place we visit. Traveling is so much more than just visiting monuments and buying gifts for everyone back at home. To travel well is to open one's mind to new possibilities and options. And by that I don't mean to spend a lot of money, this is something that can be done at all levels, in all budgets.

I will forever remember the vacation I took in the mountains were we sat under the night sky and searched the sky for passing satellites, stars and even planets. Since we were out in the open, we could hear the animals becoming active and even spot a couple of flashing eyes and animals with our heatseeker, which was a pretty cool experience. I had no idea just how clearly one would be able to see though the darkness with night vision goggles. Our hosts had got these incredible goggles from OpticsPlanet.com, which has one of the largest stocks for all optics for sports, tactical, military and other purposes.
