He did practice at night, and it was pretty chilly.
Yes, the lighting will affect him, and so do the painted lines, curbs etc.
All those things conspire to psyche him out, because all those painted lines, curbs, buildings etc. reveal the height a lot more strikingly than the flat dirt did at his practice location. The lights will be pointing upward at him to blind him, but he should be fine with the lights.
It's the dubious height, the shortened landing ramp and no recent practice that concerns me, and it should concern him too. He should be fine stepping up, but dropping off, he could go long. I'm a little nervous for the man because there are certain unanswered questions, and because he's nervous about it.
He can look past the visual mindpork of the painted lines and the different look of the place. It's the actual measurements and practice rustiness that will be of concern.
