I wish I knew if it was from a popular song, or if it was just written and performed for this episode. I have tried searching the internet but have found very little. Reviewer: Ripcord - favorite favorite favorite favorite - November 16, Subject: Thanks Most horror series aren't really scary.
Nightfall is one of the exceptions. Thanks to all for recommendations and tips! Reviewer: TheOutsiderRubbish - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - August 12, Subject: Nothing Else Like It Everything that a prior reviewer mentions as a criticism I think makes this show truly one of a kind: Lack of corny gothic style, imagery and setting. There are good episodes from Lights Out, Inner Sanctum and a bunch of others with that already.
It can be good, but didn't need to be revisited in The scientists use this apparent myth, along with recent discoveries in gravitational research, to develop a theory about the repeated collapse of society. A mathematical analysis of Lagash's orbit around its primary sun reveals irregularities caused by an undiscovered moon that cannot be seen in the light of the six suns. Calculations indicate that this moon will soon obscure one of Lagash's suns when it is alone in the sky, resulting in a total eclipse that occurs once every 2, years.
Having evolved on a planet with no diurnal cycle , Lagashians possess an intense, instinctive fear of the dark and have never experienced a prolonged period of widespread darkness. Psychological experiments have revealed that Lagashians experience permanent mental damage or even death after as little as 15 minutes in the dark, and the eclipse is projected to last for several hours.
The scientists theorize that earlier civilizations were destroyed by people who went insane during previous eclipses and—desperate for any light source—started large fires that destroyed cities. Oral accounts of the chaos from crazed survivors and small children were passed down through the ages and became the basis for the cult's sacred texts.
Present-day civilization is doomed for the same reasons, but the researchers hope that detailed observations of the upcoming eclipse will help to break the cycle of societal collapse.
The scientists are unprepared, however, for the stars. Because of the perpetual daylight on Lagash, its inhabitants are unaware of the existence of stars apart from their own; astronomers believe that the entire universe is no more than a few light years in diameter and may hypothetically contain a small number of other suns. But Lagash is located in the center of a " giant cluster ," and during the eclipse, the night sky—the first that people have ever seen—is filled with the dazzling light of more than 30, newly visible stars.
Learning that the universe is far more vast—and Lagash far more insignificant—than they believed causes everyone, including the scientists, to go insane. Outside the observatory, in the direction of the city, the horizon begins glowing with the light of spreading fires as "the long night" returns to Lagash.
The system of Lagash has six stars named Alpha, Beta, etc. In the novel, Onos is the primary sun of Lagash and is located 10 light-minutes away, similar to the distance from Earth to our Sun. The other five suns are minor in comparison, but provide enough light to prevent the inhabitants of Lagash from defining "night".
The only other distance given is that Tano and Sitha form a binary star system about 11 times as far away as Onos. From what can be drawn from the text, Onos, the star appearing brightest and largest in Lagash's sky, is the star that Lagash orbits.
