The post-apocalyptic nightlights is a lighting device of unknown origin.


As The Stranger departs the Waldhotel Winden in 2019, he asks Regina Tiedemann to deliver a package to Jonas Kahnwald, which she does. When Jonas opens it that night, it contains a Geiger counter, Michael Kahnwald's suicide note, and the orb light. He discovers that it has a hand grip, and is activated by motioning one's other hand over it.[1]

The mechanism by which the light is powered has not been explored. Unlike the flashlights, lanterns, and lighters used by other characters, however, its light has never failed as Jonas explores the Winden Caves. It may originate from post-apocalyptic times, as he is seen using one in the forest and in the ruins of the Winden Nuclear Power Plant in 2053.[2] By the same token, however, it may represent another bootstrap paradox.

Katharina Nielsen discovered the orb light that Jonas left behind in 2020, along with the annotated map of the caves, and took both of them to delve into the depths of the cave, where she was when the apocalypse struck.[3]
