Yes, it does, but the two moons are so pretty, aren't they? :)

Not sure if its a spoiler but...

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Gira is on a day/night cycle of 10 hours. So that means that just like a normal earth day, it'll be night in Gira for several hours before switching back to day

When I first played that Age (offline version), I thought there was something wrong with my computer's monitor. Sometimes it was dark, other times less dark.

The borrowed computer I was using at the time did have a problem, and I didn't gain an appreciation for Gira until I bought a PC of my own, with a good graphic card. We even tried to have parties there, for the lighting, but the Age wasn't quite stable enough for a group in the Until Uru days.

Woah, awesome video! Thanks for sharing! Doesn't seem to say the name of the person who created that on their webpage there (unless I skimmed over it), but to whoever made that, I'm going to show it to anyone who wonders what Myst Uru is. :D

Agreed, crystal, and it is our Marten himself who created it and he is our master filmmaker ... Besides that it'll show in a beautiful way to swifton what he might have missed by now ... :D

Some more links for you or anyone interested in spoiler tags as it is off-topic ... Enjoy ... :)
[Reveal] Spoiler:
More awesome Uru videos with a mention of Marten's name ...

Marten is also The Prologue Documentaries Project manager ... You can watch those documentaries of the Uru Live Prologue (2003), 'The History of the Great Tree' here if you like ...

Wow, I was pretty annoyed at how it was always night time there. I did the entire age in the dark. But after seeing that video I am going to go back and see if I can't catch it in a different time of day. Thanks for that)
