Sheikh Zayed Mosque

The fairytale of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is shown after sunset. A unique lighting system that reflects the phases of the moon. Soft, flowing clouds in delicate blue-gray are projected onto the entire white marble exterior facade at night. Every day these appear a little different - they appear darker and more blue on the days after the new moon, then brighten with the waxing of the moon, so that the light effect becomes more brilliant and appears brilliant white on the full moon.
