Implementing moonlight (or not)

An exciting "new" option in FlightGear, that includes reflections, lightmaps, the particle system etc.. A lot is yet to be discovered/implemented!

Remember, this only works for those ALS shaders that Thorsten added /environment/moonlight ambient lighting support for. There is no automated full-scene lighting, and nothing visible under the default or Rembrandt renderers. But if you have ALS on, you should see realistic moon-phase based lighting for a lot of the scene.

Just saw some changes to ephemeris/moonpos during git pull. Hopefully I'll soon find the time to check this out! Looking forward to this!
