Auburn’s Video Board Colorfully Lights Up the Sky

Today, Auburn warned civilians living in close proximity to Jordan-Hare Stadium that they would be testing the new video board’s sound system this weekend. They didn’t say anything about lighting up the universe, which is what they did tonight.

It started when a few beat reporters leaving Auburn’s football practice noticed the inside of the stadium literally changing colors.

Then it got a little darker and the lighting got serious… 

And somehow, someway, someone got a picture of it from a plane (via @kigomakid).

But that’s not the half of it. This thing was lighting up all of Auburn. From Troy M., this is the front of Legends of Magnolia on West Magnolia. You know, over by McDonald’s and Sky Bar in downtown Auburn?

This isn’t just like people seeing some red light in the sky. A building that’s nearly a mile away is bright red. It’s going to melt flesh, I tell you.

See? It’s that far away and it’s like a space shuttle’s brake light is shining from the parking lot.

Yeah, the stadium lights aren’t on, so I’m not sure it’s going to affect the Earth’s atmosphere this drastically on a Saturday night in the Fall, but still. This thing is viewable from the International Space Station. I’m sure of it.

Update: just after posting this, I was sent a picture from @dwaybrow. It was taken by his wife, a flight instructor, from 3500 feet and north of Opelika. It’s the blue dot right in the middle. Someone call NASA. We need to borrow the Hubble telescope for a few minutes.
