Bringing Daylight to a small town in Norway

Sometimes a daylight story comes into the media that just blows us away; this is one of them…

A small village in Norway, Europe, is completely surrounded by gorgeous mountains.  As the seasons change into winter and the sun doesn’t sit high enough in the sky; the small town is without any direct sunlight for six months of the year.

That was before they decided to install giant mirrors on a 400-metre high peak to deflect the sunrays towards the central square in the town creating a place of daylight.

This simple idea is enriching these people’s lives by providing them with enough sunlight to sustain the winter.
