Hey everyone you know this city Rjukan had not received Sunshine for years in winter. I was so surprised to hear this. Then a person called Sam Hyde an industrialist did a miracle using mirrors to create artificial sun. How beautiful! Everyone are happy and greatful to him. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of information. To know more, please use the link. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/nov/06/rjukan-sun-norway-town-mirrors Image from google.

I hadn't heard about this town but there is another one in the Alps where this is done, too. It's either in Austria or Switzerland. I don't remember.

@manasamanu I've found the info. It's a town in Italy that installed a mirror to lighten up the centre. They did that 10 years ago.

No worries for that because this happens only during winter and in summer they are all fine with the bright sunlight.

"For years" implies that it's because of the weather. Could it be because of how far North they are?
