+ A limelight was used to light up stages. The limelight is also know as a calcium light. A limelight is a made out of a blowtorch and a piece of lime. When the flame heats up the lime, it lights up.

The European Union has banned the manufacture and distribution of all incandescent light bulbs, meaning that the 60 watt clear bulbs will no longer be made.
