The Minnesota Vikings are turning off the lights at the team's new practice facility south of Minneapolis after neighbors complained about the glow.

The Eagan building's north side is nearly 100 feet (30.5 meters) high and lights up with the team's Norseman logo and the words "Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center - Home of the Minnesota Vikings."

The Vikings moved into the 277,000-square-foot complex in March. The area includes an indoor practice facility, the team's headquarters and an outdoor stadium.
