Norway Sun
People gather on a spot in front of the town hall of Rjukan, Norway, Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, where sunshine is reflected by three giant mirrors erected on the mountainside above the industrial town. Rjukan, known among other things for its darkness in winter, is located in the bottom of a valley between steep mountains in Telemark County, some 150 km west of Oslo. The idea about mirrors reflecting sunshine to the town in winter was launched 100 years ago and will now become a reality after the official opening on Oct. 31.
