The Night Owl Potion is a buff potion which grants the Night Owl buff when consumed. The buff improves the player's night vision, and sharply increases the radius of any available light source. This potion has no effect on total darkness.

This lasts for 10 minutes / 4 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Old-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version).

The ingredients of this potion, the Daybloom and Blinkroot, are exceedingly common and can easily be grown in Clay Pots or Planter Boxes or just farmed naturally within one's base.

Combined with the Shine Potion, it is possible to see about half the screen using nothing but basic, low-level ingredients that far outshine the Shadow Orb or other mobile light sources for exploration.
