Lit up wind turbine

A wind turbine decorated with colorful lights spins in a starry sky near Hanover, Germany on Sept. 5. The 30 multicolored light were installed onto the wind turbine by French artist Patrick Raynaud.

The electricity for the lights is produced by the wind turbine itself, and the lights become brighter depending on the power of the wind.
