Last year I missed Earth Hour but made up for it a few weeks later during Earth Day basically doing the same drill. This year I remembered in time and took place in it by turning off my lights/electronics & doing the same thing I did last year, go out to the state park near by. I was hoping to see 1) more stars then usual, and 2) a difference when the lights went out in NYC, but unfortunatly I didn't see either. There was a cloud cover and I saw, after running to the park (left too late) no change before/during/after Earth Hour in terms of the light pollution. :( Music selection is "Leanne" by Alchemorph Soundtracks www.thesixtyone.com A new place for finding creative commons attribution 3.0 songs is at thesixtyone.
