The bizarre outage left people speculating whether the lights were shut off in solidarity with the planned demonstrations. So far the National Parks Service is yet to comment.

If someone's turned off the Statue of Liberty for a day without women, can we also go cover statues/paintings of Justice and Victory?— Anna Williams (@lireavue) March 8, 2017
The EarthCam live stream captured the lights at the Statue of Liberty coming back on, after showing her cloaked in darkness, except for her crown and torch lights.
