Skywatch Friday: The Twilight Zone and The Terminator
The Twilight Zone and Terminator are probably two of the most remembered movies from the the last century. The former, a popular TV serial, was originally produced and broadcast by CBS from 1959 to 1964. The later is a box office movie produced and released in 1984. Both films are of fiction, sci-fi genre and tell stories that relate to time-travel fantasies. But did you know that twilight zone and terminator are also different names for another imagined (fictive) thing?
Twilight zone (also called terminator) is the name of an imagined line that mark the border between the dark and light in a planetary body, such as that that can be imagined in our Earth's sunrise and sunset. As such, the twilight zone metaphorically also means the grey area.
My skywatch photo today is - as you can see - that of the twilight.
