Just messed about with the image again for a bit of fun. I'd love it if the edges lighted up like this.

I've got to give congratulations again. Through his images, we can get a sense of time remains to be built in relation to WTC7.
I do not know which interface you use to base the height of the building, and if she is faithful to 417 meters. But anyway, your picture is great.

Sorry, but I see the resemblance.

I thought it was supposed to be a nuke discised as a spire, but now it is said to be an animal horn? Worst way to hide a nuke ever...

Does anyone know how the spire will be lit at night? For example the aircraft obstruction lighting. Will the lighting scheme be like the original twins, empire state building or the willis tower. Maybe an all new scheme just my 2 cents.

The lighting will be unique, FAA rules and regs will be followed.

Great pics everyone !

1. The Antenna
Crowning One World Trade Center and bringing the building to the symbolic height of 1,776 feet (541 meters) will be a broadcasting antenna measuring 408 feet (124 meters). Encased in a radome, a unique protective enclosure that's transparent to radio waves, the antenna will also be guarded by a decorative steel spire. A latticelike ring will sit at its base and serve as a docking station for other broadcasting devices such as point-to-point microwave dishes and electronic news-gathering antennae. The ring will further protect the mast thanks to eight translucent Kevlar cables that will stretch from the ring to the antenna, to steady it in high winds. And of course, the city of New York will want to keep its new masterpiece clean, so window-washing equipment will also be built into the ring.

Finally, the slowly rotating beacon at the top of the antenna will flash out Morse code for the letter "N" which stands for New York. New indeed.

It's probably just a reflection of sunlight moonlight coming off some orange sheets used to cover construction materials. Looks just like flames to the paranoid eye...
