I found the picture beneath in the Blick while waiting in a café. The big picture shows Prince Charles looking through a night vision device. The describing text mentions that Charles wasn’t surprised that he didn’t see anything but darkness and only after the removal of the cap it work.
Sorry, but this is just Bullshit!
Normal night vision glasses work by daylight with the cap on. Because they have a little whole in the middle and that is just sufficient to test the device. Furthermore most night vision glasses will get damaged if used by daylight without the cap.
|But my guess is that this columnist remembered the picture of George Bush and thought it is a funny story. But why be surprised about the profound research by Blick.|
