A piece of IllumiNations Reflections of Earth pyro launch hardware to be auctioned

27 days ago in "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth"

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers is offering a piece of hardware from the former Epcot nighttime spectacular - IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

Described as "12ft x 12ft Pontoon Marine Equipment, the barge will be sold through a timed auction on the RBAuction website. It appears from the website pictures that there are at least two available.

The "midi barge" was introduced for the Reflections of Earth show back in 1999, and worked alongside the existing "maxi barges" from IllumiNations to offer more pyro launch locations in the center of the World Showcase Lagoon.

Reflections of Earth had its final performance at the end of September 2019, and much of the hardware was scrapped. Some of the smaller pieces were kept, and are now being sold.
