The USS Yorktown has already gone pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, but now the aircraft carrier is preparing to go blue.

Patriots Point is going to "Light It Up Blue" on April 2nd for World Autism Awareness Day. The blue lighting dispalying on iconic landmarks is supposed to represent people "shining a light on Autism."

Be sure to snap some pictures of the Yorktown if you are walking across the Ravenel Bridge that night - seeing the large ship covered in blue lights will probably look pretty cool.
