When the lights go out in Springfield, the citizens are easy to find. As long as they keep their eyes open, that is. In the darkness, only their eyes can be seen, almost as if there is a source of light inside each eye. Teeth have been known to be seen in the dark as well. The following are instances where this strange phenomenon has occured.
