Washington Monument Lights Go Out With No Explanation


This is a bit strange.

Last night the lights at the Washington Monumental mysteriously went out with no explanation.

The only lights that remained lit were the red air traffic control lights at the top.

An investigation is now underway for the cause of the lights being shut off.

Take a look at the blackout:

Fox News reported the story:

The Washington Monument lights went out on Sunday, leading officials to try and figure out why.

“The exterior lights of the Washington Monument are currently out,” the National Park Service tweeted on Sunday evening. “We are investigating and will have them restored as soon as possible.”

Users took to social media to speculate on the reason for the mysterious outage, which appeared to leave the famed monument in darkness — besides its red lights at the top that blink a warning to aircraft.

What do you think caused the lights to turn off?

Was it just simply a power outage or was it symbolic of what’s to come?
