The beacon will shine two horizontal beams of light. Like a lighthouse.

Here's a video of the beacon in action.

Does anyone know if they will turn the beacon light on, at night, as soon as they install the beacon or might they still wait for some months afterwards?

Wow looks like a dead heat right now unless they erect the final piece tom..Thanks for the favor Kanto, looks like 1WTC will have the 3rd tallest for about a month, then it will settle in nicley as 4th for awhile.. Nothing to bitch about that.

Off-topic from the spire-hype, does anyone have word on when they will begin on the above-ground superstructure for the transport hub? I know they've been hard at work in the underground superstructure, but I've been curious about the above ground work.

CNN said the last segment of the antenna will be placed at noon EST. Which is GMT - 5. Is there any livestream available for that event?

Wouldn't anything sticking that high in the sky have to be lit from the time of installation for safety reasons if nothing else ?

Well I think the lights of the cranes have been covering for the rest of the antenna

So far it's only cloudy with some rain drops here and there.

The cranes are active.
