Iceland turns out the lights

The latest happening in glacial, æthereal Iceland: turning out the lights, sitting in the dark and looking at the night sky:
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.
The UK is looking at doing something similar, assuming corporate sponsors and marketing tie-ins can be found.
