Isn't It Romantic?

Authorities in the capital Reykjavik will turn off street lights on Thursday evening and people are also being encouraged to sit in their houses in the dark, writer Andri Snaer Magnason said on Wednesday.

While the lights are out, an astronomer will describe the night sky over national radio.

"We have a very beautiful sky as soon as we turn off the lights," Magnason, who came up with the idea, told Reuters.

Every so often, one hears an idea of heartbreaking beauty. Today, we hear this timeless, lovely notion.

If they people like our Republicans, they'll scream about how it's their right to keep their lights on, and who cares about they night sky anyway??

Could we see the stars even in the dark? Maybe on a really clear cold night when the smogsmokehaze has all blown away.
