Amex logo glows in blacklight!!?

So I was out this past weekend at an undisclosed location 😜, and I noticed that on my BCE, there was a glowing "AM" in big letter on the far left of the card and an " EX" logo on the far right... It was from a blacklight!
It was super awesome! I took a picture, but alas I have no way of posting that here!
Just thought it was an interesting feature Ive never seen in a CC before...
Anyone else notice?

This security feature has been used for at least 35 years. 

 

I first noticed the glowing AMEX while I was tending bar in a large nightclub, where black lights were hung over the cash register. 

 

I also observed that gin & tonic drinks have a glow, when under the black lights, though I have no idea why.

 

Many drivers licenses and state IDs also have this feature.
