How Many Christmas Lights Do You Need To Be Visible From Space?
We all know the neighbor or family member that goes all out with Christmas lights and decorations for their home.
And most likely, someone has cracked the joke that you could prolly see their house from space.
A new study that is lined out in an article from the Daily Mail answers this age old dig going around the cul-de-sac every year. I mean, according to your neighbor, your home decorations are weak sauce because the astronauts in the International Space Station can't enjoy your multi-colored ice cycle lights.
The answer my surprise you because it doesn't seem like that many, or at least to me it doesn't.
Apparently you only need 2,683 bulbs on your home for it to be visible from space.
But, there's a catch. You would need to be in a dark area, without a lot of light pollution, like the middle of a desert. If you're in a more crowded area, it would be a lot harder for someone in space to notice your lights.
