Night Vision as a Modification specifically was first seen as a result of the Night Vision Sunglasses Drop in the Season β23 Gift Shop during Latesiesta. In total, only 2 Night Vision Sunglasses were granted this way.
Despite only first appearing as a Modification during the late Expansion Era, Night Vision's effect of a 50% boost during Solar Eclipse is actually much older. During the Season 6 Election, the Night Vision Goggles Blessing was offered and went to Sutton Dreamy of the Baltimore Crabs. This Blessing appeared as a pre-rework Item, did not have a Modification signifying its effect, and only affected hitting.
