Pictures of Things That Glow Under Black Light

A black light is an ultraviolet lamp. It is called a 'black' light because the ultraviolet light is outside of the visible spectrum. When you shine a black light on some objects, they glow very brightly because they are fluorescent or phosphorescent. Here is a photo gallery of objects that glow under a black light.
