An artificial moon is a satellite put into a planet’s orbit to reflect sunlight back to that planet.

By 2022, China plans to have three artificial moons in orbit around the Earth. These will shine 8 times brighter than the natural moon. By having this as a light source, China believes it could save over a hundred million dollars a year from the cost of electricity used for streetlights.

There are some concerns about how the absence of a normal day and night cycle will effect the minds and bodies of humans and animals.

It is said that if the project is successful when the imitation of the celestial body is launched, it won’t look like a giant moon, rather it would look like a big star.

It would save millions of dollars spend on lighting up streets at night.
