The Explorium
Future Lights: 1982 
EPCOT Center glimmers in this shot of Spaceship Earth and the entrance plaza in late 1982, some two months after opening. The lighting on Spaceship Earth is very much akin to the “reverse sunset” we have in place now, but shifted, slowly, to cool tones and pastels, through the night.
Notice how the reflective mirror column and the fountain pylons create a interesting parallel and striking visual lines to draw the viewers attention up to Spaceship Earth, while the lit “banks” on the sides of the entrance plaza create a symmetry and focus.
