Something To Reflect On

Viganella, Italy, builds giant mirror for sunlight
A small town called "Viganella" in Italy received no sunlight for about 84 days each winter because it was surrounded by mountains. 

 In 2006, after 800 years of this, the village found a solution - they installed giant mirrors to reflect the sun on their town.
