The Sky Tree has now officially opened, but after a couple of days of nice sunny weather the weather gods are spoiling the party today.

Still the people with a ticket lined up early to go up the tower.

Man, why'r you in hurry ? I think it deserves to stay a little longer for being the tallest free standing tower and the second tallest in the world. I wouldn't mind it to stay for a longer period.

At least the opening won´t be crowded XD

The rotating light ring in the mist looks nice in the second part of the last video XD

We´ll have to wait to the next clear night for a second inuguration. How is the forecast for tomorrow? lol

Tomorrow it will be a very nice day 25°C and sunny, with a clear evening for the lights.

They really picked the wrong day for the opening.

Some photos from the pods here: http://bluestyle.livedoor.biz/
It seems reservations for going up to the pods are sold out until July 10

If tonight is clear, there will be many nice videos of the lit tower.
