The first night-launch of a Saturn I launch vehicle took place at 2:35 am on May 25, 1965, with the liftoff of SA-8, carrying the second Pegasus meteoroid detection satellite, from Complex 37 at Cape Kennedy.

Nice shot with the VAB and all 3 mobile launch platforms in the photo.
Too bad there seems to be no extended video coverage of these Saturn I launches, even from Spacecraft Films.
