PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Patients at Hasbro Children’s Hospital are going to get a special “Good Night Lights” greeting from the International Space Station.
On March 27, NASA astronaut Anne McClain will send the greeting from 250 miles above Earth.
Every night at 8:30 p.m., patients gather in rooms at the hospital for the “magic minute” when local organizations and businesses send flashing light signals to the hospital. In response, patients will flash lights back.
Newer community participants are using “Good Night Lights” light kits, while others such as Rhode Island Hospital are using LED message boards.
