Did you turn off the lights for Earth Hour?

Millions of people and thousands of places did.

Earth Hour is an annual “lights off” event that asks individuals and institutions around the globe to go dark for 60 minutes to show symbolic support for the planet and raise awareness of the environmental issues affecting it.

Sure, it sounds a bit woo-woo. But Earth Hour it’s been taking place since 2007. And the level of participation is pretty impressive.

From the pylons at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the Space Needle in Seattle, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and Tower Bridge in London, here are some of the places around the globe that went dark for an hour in honor of Earth Hour on Saturday at 8:30 pm (local time).

Let us know if you participated in Earth Hour this year.
