I got one co-worker good with this. She's a little high strung, always gives good reactions   

A slightly belated Halloween short film for you:

If you have any old "vaseline glass" ... green or more usually pale greenish glass, mostly produced in the first half of the 20th Century ... you probably already know that the green is due to uranium oxide as the pigment in the glass. We have an old glass orange juicer that my wife's family had all during her formative years, and it's pale green in color, and it's got uranium oxide in it, which I have confirmed both with Geiger counter and a black light.

 

What you may not know is that the uranium oxide fluoresces in UV, a nice bright yellow-green. If you can find some of the stuff (and any other fluorescent objects you can find) you can accentuate some effects with your black light imaging with them.

 

My grandma had quite a bit of those things when I was little (I was always mysteriously fascinated by it for some reason as a wee kid).  Don't know who ended up with it in the family, though.
