By 2020, the Tian Fu New Area Science Society plans to launch an artificial moon to light up the night sky. If the plan goes through, the so-called “illumination satellite” would orbit above the Chinese city of Chengdu and glow in conjunction with the actual moon, but shine eight times brighter. The organization says it will launch three more satellites in 2022 — potentially replacing streetlights in urban areas. The plans were announced by Wu Chunfeng, head of the society, at an innovation conference in Chengdu on October 10.The lunar project aims to cut down on costly streetlights in China’s bustling cities. By lighting up just 31 square miles (50 square kilometers) of Chengdu’s night sky, the mini-moon could save the city an estimated 1.2 billion yuan ($174 million) each year.
