Dark side of the Moon?

Please Tekkit, Speak To Me,

So I'm made my trip to the moon. I'd like to say it's been a nice trip I've landed in complete darkness. Can't see a thing and now it's getting hard to Breathe. As soon as I landed I've been On the Run, running out of Time. This was supposed to be The Great Gig in the Sky! I'm out of Money and now it's Us and Them. I do like how the flag can be Any Colour You Like, if only I could see it. I think the landing may have caused some Brain Damage.

So my question is.... is it meant to be complete darkness up here? Can I craft some sort of light source? Torches/Glowstone do nothing. Am I waiting for an Eclipse? Or have I just landed on the Dark Side of The Moon?

Please help....

ok, I thought this might have been a day/night cycle problem, but I really cannot see anything at all. My brightness is on full. I can sort of make out the smoke effect given by torches but really, it's all just blackness. I can see the stars (and sun!) when I look up, waypoints, minimap shows torches when I put them down, but other than that... just shadow. There is NO LIGHT whatsoever. Am I missing something?

I'm using Sphax texturepack if that makes any difference.

you don't happen to have Night Vision enabled on a Modular Powersuit, do you? It's a well-known effect that Night Vision causes screwiness when in Pocket Dimensions and Space. Try turning it off and waiting for the timer (on your inventory screen) to count down to zero; then you should be able to see.

Breathe, breathe in the air, don't be afraid to care. Oh wait...

It's probably the night vision as weirleader said. I always assign a key to the night vision toggle so I can go in and out of the dimensions that have this problem. Also if you don't have an oxygen setup you'll run out of air rather quickly. It is the great gig in the sky, you just have to prepare a bit for it. On the overworld, place an oxygen collector and an oxygen compressor linked together with some oxygen piping between them and you've got an infinite air supply to fill oxygen tanks with. Then craft yourself an oxygen mask, oxygen gear and two oxygen tanks of any size. Place the tanks into the compressor to fill em then place each of the oxygen items into their special slots in your inventory. Bang, one oxygen setup for short excursions into space. To make a similar setup on the moon or your space station, place an oxygen collector and compressor and surround it with tree leaves. A single oxygen collector will pull oxygen from leaves within a 5 block radius to fill itself with oxygen. More leaves = more oxygen. The leaves will eventually deteriorate and you'll have to replace them. Growing trees helps and I've heard growing wheat does too. You can survive for extended periods as long as you keep filling your tanks. In addition to the tanks the oxygen collector can feed oxygen to either the oxygen bubble distributor which will create a pocket of breathable air or create a structure and use the oxygen sealer to fill that structure with oxygen.
