COPENHAGEN (CBS NEWSPATH) – The Copenhagen Light Festival brightens the Danish Capital during winter months.
It can be very cold and dark during the winter in northern countries.
Temperatures in Denmark can drop as low as 17 degrees, with sunrise beginning at 8 a.m. and sunset at 5 p.m.
However, the black sky gives the perfect background for this light festival.
A green laser which crosses the city symbolizes the Copenhagen Light Festival that operates during the month of February.
The festival also welcomes internationally acclaimed artists, who work with theater, temporary art performances or architectural lighting.
The “Copenhagen Light Festival” continues until Feb. 24, when the lights again go out, creating darkness.
