I'm confused. Are you talking about the rotating sphere of stars? The background of that IS black.

I just checked the code -- you are right -- the background is dark blue. I'm going to change it to black.

Good I'm not having perception problems after all. I wonder if it would be possible to make the background color a setting or a cycling thing while you are messing with it.
