Beijing-based artist Wang Yuyang’s Artificial Moon
may resemble the famous Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year's Eve Ball, but it's meant to be a magnificent recreation of Earth's only moon. Constructed from hundreds of compact fluorescent lightbulbs and at over 13 feet wide, the massive moon even has strategically placed lights to mimic the real moon's craters and surface features.
It remarkably stands not only as a work of art, but as a representation of the moon that Shanghai inhabitants cannot see because of pollution. What an amazing piece! Can’t take my eyes off the shimmer...
