Recently, researchers of NASA reported that in majority of the countries lights are more intense during holiday season.
Experts carefully analyzed the daily data of Suomi NPP Satellite for the study.
The data shows that the lights shine up to 20 percent brighter in the United States at New Year season, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas season.
Normally, it is considered as a norm of Christians to decorate their gardens and lawns with lights for the celebration of Christmas. Moreover, the family dinners and late night parties are also the reason of the extra usage of lights in festivals. In a nutshell, the ratio of lightning in holidays is comparatively higher than the normal usage of electricity in the US.
Miguel Roman, the co author of the report informs that everyone know that America is the centre of cultural and religious mixtures. However, the increase in lightening at the time of festivals is pretty evident in all the states of US. Most of the intense lights are spotted at the Southern part of the country. The snow on the grounds is the chief reason behind more reflection of light in Southern region.
In comparison, the Eastern countries illuminate approximately 50 percent brighter in the Ramadan season.
Generally, it is a tradition in almost every country to switch on more lights in festivals. Sadly, a single day of increase in the utilization of energy can have a negative impact on the overall power consumption. The rise in the usage of energy was so prominent that NASA even detected it from Space.
