Christmas is almost here! This week’s post features some great holiday light displays. I am impressed by the effort, creativity, and the amount of electricity that made these displays shine so beautifully and brightly. In addition, I have included a picture of a special holiday light display powered by the universe.

Ships currently moored in Pearl Harbor will participate in the 2006 Holiday Light Judging Competition. Regional commanders will tour the harbor and judge the ships based on innovation, brilliance, enthusiasm, energy conservation and overall categories.

This festive NASA Hubble Space Telescope image resembles a holiday wreath made of sparkling lights. The bright southern hemisphere star RS Puppis, at the center of the image, is swaddled in a gossamer cocoon of reflective dust illuminated by the glittering star.
I enjoyed sharing these holiday light displays with you, and I hope you enjoy spending time with your families and friends over the next few days. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year! 🙂
