Giant mirror to light up mountain village

Swiss officials are considering the construction of a giant mirror to light up this mountain village with 198 residents who are deprived of sunlight for three months each year.

The project would help illuminate parts of the southeastern Swiss town of Bondo that lie so deep in the Bregaglia Valley they do not receive any sunlight between December and February.

The Viganella mirror, which follows the sun’s path using a remote computer, cost $130,000.

On Sunday, Bondo residents are expected to see this winter’s first rays of sunlight hit the town square.
