This question already has an answer here:
Why are passengers requested to close their window blinds during a night-time takeoff?
I understand why they are asked to open them during day-time take-offs and landings - probably because rescue teams can look inside in the case of a crash. But what´s the point in closing them at night?
The only reason I can think of is that people might mistake the cabin lights for landing lights, hence misjudging the planes orientation. Still, it is very difficult to mistake a row of cabin lights for landing lights?
