Being primarily nocturnal creatures, moths evolved to travel by the glimmer of the moon, by a method called transverse orientation. Indeed, the day that Thomas Edison patented the lightbulb—January 27, , which paved the way for global distribution of electric illumination—was a dark day in moth history.
