Noctiluca (Magellan's Toys #1) (1974) silent, 3.5 minutes. "Designed to be shown on the second day of the Magellan cycle. The title (nox/luceo) means something that shines at night, i.e., the moon [...] The second day of the cycle seems to be an inventory of the knowledge, machines, and arms that Magellan-and latter-day voyagers like HF-had at the outset of his journey" (Brian Henderson).
