Yes, you are correct, those are Jacks.They have to be at the height of their maturity before they will glow in the dark. The room has to be pitch black and you have to get your eyes used to the darkness. Some glow really bright and some barely glow. David Arora ( author of Mushrooms Demystified ) said he found some once that he could read a newspaper by.
Thanks for your reply. I think is must have been old becsause I took my wife and two sons to the spot where I found it and there were 50 more. It was a good teaching moment for all. I picked some of the newest ones and headed strait to the cellar. They glowed well enough to see the hair on my arms. The boys thought it was so cool. Thanks again! We did find some chanterelles just popping up not a hundred yards away. Going back to see how many there are this evening.
