It's been said that you don't have a decent Christmas light display unless you can see it from space. Sounds about right to me. Well the good news is science now tells us exactly how many lights you'd need to string up to accomplish this feat. A new study says it only takes 2,683 bulbs for the international space station to get a glimpse of your decorating efforts.
But there's a catch of course. You'd need to be in a pretty dark and isolated area. Sorry city folk, the astronauts are probably gonna miss your house. However, if you live in say a desert or an extremely rural area with little light pollution, the heavens above will literally be able to see your light show from the sky. Cool .-RJ
