Hot air balloons that illuminate the landscape below. Imagine what the Grand Canyon, Stonehenge, or the Great Wall of China would look like lit up at night by a half dozen floating giant lightbulbs.

These guys use helium, but basically the same idea. [neutrinos_shadow, Feb 14 2008]


       It's going to take a lot more than 6 giant lightbulbs to illuminate any of those areas.

       how about 99 then?

       If there's 99, they'd have to be red.

       I like this image but how are the balloons to be lit up?

       // but how are the balloons to be lit up? //   

       Conventional tungsten-fillament light bulbs are filled with an inert gas - typically Argon - at atmospheric pressure. There's no reason why the same thing wouldn't work inside a Helium balloon ......

       Or put a limelight on top of the burner of a hot air balloon.
