What will the ceiling look like from the interior, when the petals are closed? Will it just be a bunch of scaffolding with a cladding that looks like tin?

Looks like obstructed view of the board. From this vantage point, you can see only 1/5th of the screen height.

2 things to note about this view:
1: The height of the webcam is farther back and higher than any seats in the stadium (even the temporary seats).
2: this is a view of the side. If you look strait on to the board you can see at least 1/2 of it.

But yea these handful of temporary seats at the uppermost limit of the stadium might not be able to see the whole halo board.

Too bad for them. Maybe they'll have auxillary boards for those people.

Can't remember what the renders look like for this, but the shape of that bowl... horrifying.

View from the 2nd farthest row (won't go back to farthest). No obstruction



However, there are other areas where the board is partly obstructed

Sad part is. Those are really not bad seats at all but i be damned if i dont pay to get the full experience i wanna see all the halo board and everything lol. so I will pay a little more to sit a little closer. Thanks guys for all the info and help

Is there any estimation or timetable as to when the halo board will be completed or more trucks arriving. its awesome to see some of it installed already and think about when they start testing THAT baby out. its gonna light up the city

Daktronics has said that it would take about three weeks to install the Halo board.

that might be right, but how often are you going to need those seats? superbowl, college playoff final and maybe basketball final four, so once every few years. and even then whoever gets in is a darling of fortune ... so not likely people would complain about not seing halo boards or whatever else, as long as they see the pitch

Yup that was my point. I guess it was hard to detect the sarcasm in my post.

Oof. Not the best seat in the house if you are watching Atlanta United.

But I think that's part of the section they won't be using?
