iOS 6 features a new Do Not Disturb option, found in Settings, which lets you disable alerts (you can customize it, pick and even set a schedule in Settings > Notifications).

When you enable Do Not Disturb, a moon icon does not simply appear to the left of the time in the status bar, it animates in and out.

Thanks Rick Stawarz, and thanks Paul Conigliaro for the animation
