The most fun you can have in the dark...

Imagine the lights of major cities around the world suddenly plunged into darkness for an hour. Sound like the demented plan of a crazed super villain? More like Saturday night's observation of Earth Hour, a symbolic gesture to raise awareness of global climate change.

 

On a macro level, iReporters showed us landmarks and skylines going dark. TiagoFM captured the Eiffel Tower in the dark, while Kaaxz showed us before-and-after pictures of a castle in Stockholm, Sweden. Elsabe showed us Cape Town , South Africa, and we saw Dubai , United Arab Emirates, from sharadagarwa . Inside the U.S., we saw expatnyc 's footage of New York going dark (and PHAmanNYC 's assertion that it was a bit of a bust), MarieSager 's photos of the event in Los Angeles and NakedBoyNews ' images of Las Vegas , Nevada.

 

On a more micro level, ordinary folks grabbed their video cameras and took us into their candlelit households. TechyMom documented her hour without power in southern Atlanta, Georgia, on a video that gives a blow-by-blow view of an evening of eating ice cream by candlelight. (This was only for an hour, after all.) ChrisMorrow visited the W Hotel in San Diego, California, to watch the "W" darkened, and then went home to film her husband Marty with the dogs using her camera's night vision .

 

There were so many iReports from so many places using creative photography and video editing to show us the wide-reaching impact of Earth Hour. Check out our map to see where the lights went out. If you participated in Earth Hour, send us your photos and videos and take a look at what everyone else has sent. Comment below to tell us what you think.

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
