This moves us into night fighting and one lesson I still remember to this day. The figure eight. When you are out at night, the edges of your vision tend to see better than what's directly in front of you. So if you look at something and have your eyes trace a figure eight, you're more likely to get a clearer picture of what you want to see. Which brings us to a common theme in this series, blurring or blocking out a person's face to keep their identity secret. And I'm sure that black bar over your eyes makes it even harder to see at night.
