Does any one remember how the moon was set up in SI ? Does it have a light behind it ? and does it just use clear glass to reflect the game image ?

The moon is a plastic extra in front of the mirrored backglass. You can still get them from the States. There is a light at the back, which is a blacklight. Part number should be Sylvania BL350.
The picture is from the horizontally mounted monitor, which is reflected from a mirrored backglass at the back of the cabinet.
If you need some pics let me know.

Cheers,
Xygt

The moonscape actually sits behind the mirrored glass. It has an 15watt blacklight tube mounted behind it which gives it a 3D effect and ensures it reflects through the mirrored glass.
