Earth hour: Lights out, star gazing and cosmic sounds at the Citadel
|Email item||Print item||
This year marks the 12th anniversary of the launch of Earth Hour all over the world, and Gozo will once again be joining other monuments and landmarks in around 7,000 cities from all over the world that are switching off lights from 8.30pm.
However, at the Citadel this year the public are invited to go a step further and experience something quite different, with the lights out there will also be stargazing and cosmic sounds.
Spacelab is welcoming the public to join them at the Citadel, where the bastion lights will be switched off at 8.30pm local time.
Then as the lights-out they will train their telescope to the skies to the tune of Cosmic Sounds. The public are invited to go along, “bring a red light, a blanket and an open mind……. and Connect2Earth.”
There will also be an exhibition of Spaceship Models for the young ones at the Cittadella Visitor Centre. If you would like to submit yours please see here.
Earth Hour first started as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, and is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature.
Millions of people around the world join this initiative to create awareness on the usage of clean energy in order to reduce harmful emissions leaving a negative effect on the climate and the atmosphere.
Earth hour is next Saturday, the 30th of March, from 8.30pm at the Citadel.
