AND, it has a glowing red dot between the eyes from what i hear
That red dot is the IR light. Not only can it be seen by the naked eye but to gen2 and gen3 goggles that looks like a flashlight on your head.
Don't forget about Gen 1 too. All Generations of Night Vision will see a IR from almost any reasonable distance like a beacon in the night.
And its rarely, hardly seen by the naked eye. You won't see it from any distance and probably won't ever see it from anywhere. It's a very faint red light that does not emit much at all for the naked eye to pick up. At least the quality ones, I don't have much experience with cheapo's if they emit more of the red light.
When dealing with Night Vision, always buy as much as you can afford to.
