Scientists may have found a way to generate solar power at night

(KYMA, KECY) - Scientists say they may be able to one day use solar power without direct sunlight.

Australian researchers believe they have figured out a way to produce electricity from so-called nighttime solar power.

They say their device generates electricity from heat radiated as infrared light.

It takes advantage of solar energy earth radiates back into outer space at night.

That is how the planet cools itself during nighttime.

Right now the device only produces a very small amount of power.
