EARTH HOUR PICTURES: Before and After, 2009



The Colosseum shone as brightly as ever until 8:30 p.m. local time on March 28, 2009, when Rome turned off the monument's lights for Earth Hour 2009.

The voluntary, annual global blackout, which aims to ease global warming, began in Sydney in 2007 with the nonprofit WWF. In 2009, 2,712 cities, towns, and municipalities in 83 countries signed up to participate in Earth Hour. The movement is a symbolic gesture in support of action against global warming.

The Colosseum remained dark until 9:30 p.m. local time on March 28, 2009, when Earth Hour ended.

Other world landmarks that went dark for an hour include the Empire State Building, the Las Vegas strip, the Eiffel Tower, Rio de Janiero's statue of "Christ the Redeemer," Athens's Acropolis, and Egypt's Great Pyramids
